About Awake

About Awake

Formerly titled ‘REM,’ ‘Awake’ is a sci-fi drama that follows two separate realities lived by police detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) after he is involved in a car accident. Britten wears colored rubber bands to differentiate between the two realities. In the ”red” reality, Britten’s wife, Hannah (Laura Allen), survived the accident while his son, Rex (Dylan Minnette), did not. In this reality, Britten’s partner is Detective Isaiah ”Bird” Freeman (Steve Harris) and he visits a therapist named Dr. John Lee (B.D. Wong). In the ”green” reality, Rex survived while Hannah passed away. Britten visits a different therapist, named Dr. Judith Evans (Cherry Jones, ’24’), and has a different partner, Detective Efrem Vega (Wilmer Valderrama, ‘That 70s Show’). Also in the ”green” reality, Britten becomes attracted to his tennis coach, a woman named Tara (Michaela McManus).
