[03/01/12 - 09:02 AM] Video: A Few Minutes With... "Awake" Co-Stars B.D. Wong & Cherry Jones By Jim Halterman (TFC)
One man. Two worlds. That's the foundation of the new drama, "Awake," which premieres tonight on NBC. In the series, created by Kyle Killen ("Lone Star") and Executive Produced by Howard Gordon ("Homeland" "24"), police detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) survives a car crash where passengers are his wife (Laura Allen) and teenage son (Dylan Minnette). However, in one reality, Britten's wife has died and he's left a widower raising his son. In another reality, his son is the one who has died and but his wife is by his side. The question of the series - and one that Britten may or may not want to answer - is which reality is real? Are either of them? How are the worlds linked? Can he find the answers in therapy sessions with a psychiatrist in one world (played by B.D. Wong) or a sympathetic psychologist (Cherry Jones) in the other? Can this concept sustain itself for a long multi-year run?
Our Jim Halterman asked those questions and more during a recent set visit in Los Angeles where he had the chance to talk about how past works fold into "Awake" with Killen and Gordon, how Wong and Jones see their respective characters' different therapy methods and how Isaacs is keeping it all straight in his own mind.
And here's the complete index of all the interviews from the event:
