Aired on: NBC, spring 2012
Creator Kyle Killen's "Lone Star" was pulled from FOX after just two episodes in the fall of 2010, but what little critics saw of the show, they liked very much. So expectations ran high for "Awake," which starred Jason Isaacs as a detective who survived a car crash but found himself living in two realities, unsure of which one was actually real. Isaacs was great, and the show mostly held up its intriguing premise, but ultimately it suffered the same fate as "Lone Star." NBC did at least run all 13 episodes it had ordered.
