Awake is an American television crime drama. It originally aired on NBC for one season from March 1 to May 24, 2012. The main character in the show is Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs), a detective who works for the Los Angeles Police Department. Kyle Killen created the series. Killen is also an executive producer along with David Slade, for "Pilot." Jeffrey Reiner and Howard Gordon continued with Killen, under his Teakwood Lane Productions label. On May 11, 2012, after eleven of the thirteen produced episodes were aired, the show was canceled. However, it still finished airing the remaining episodes in the original time slot. Even though the series' did not last very long, many people liked the series enough to create the "Save Awake" campaign to convince networks to revive the show.
