‘Awake’ Premiere Date Announced!

NBC has announced the premiere date for Dylan Minnette’s new show, Awake.

Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, announced Friday that the drama starring Jason Isaacs will premiere on Thursday, March 1 at 10 p.m., taking over for struggling series The Firm.

“The Firm” will move to Saturdays at 10 p.m. beginning Feb. 11. Starting next week, repeat episodes of “Grimm” will air at 10 p.m. Thursdays before “Awake” launches.

Starring Jason Issacs, “Awake” will attempt to solve NBC’s season-long problems in that slot. The show has received strong initial critical buzz based upon the pilot that NBC released to the press last summer.

Isaacs plays a detective who finds himself living in a dual reality. After a car accident, he wakes up in two separate universes, one where only his wife (Laura Allen, “Terriers”) has survived, the other where only his son (Dylan Minnette, “Saving Grace”) is the survivor. Wilmer Valderrama, Steve Harris, Michaela McManus, Cherry Jones and B.D. Wong also star in the 20th Century Fox TV production.

Make sure you tune in on March 1st at 10 p.m. for the premiere! Are you excited to see the show?
