NBC’s Awake will have Jason Isaacs leading double lives

There’s a new NBC show coming to town called Awake, and it stars Harry Potter’s Jason Isaacs as a detective living dual lives. As Detective Michael Britten, he was involved in a car accident that seems to have killed his wife and son. The weird thing is that his “coping mechanism” is making him live two different lives, one where his son is alive and the other where his wife is.

Since he’s living two lives, he gets two different partners as a detective and two different therapists. He’s also able to figure out hard-to-solve cases because of his new abilities.

The show also stars Steve Harris and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez from That 70’s Show) as Isaacs’ partners; and Cherry Jones and BD Wong (Jurassic Park scientist and Mulan’s love interest) as his therapists.

Awake will air on Thursday, March 1 (10-11 p.m. ET).
