On March 1, NBC will be premiering its new series, Awake
, which promises to be a unique series, and with the talented people involved in both production and in front of the camera, its easy to see why this show has all the makings of a hit for the network.Awake
was created by Kyle Killen, who also serves as executive producer. He is probably best known for his short-lived series Lone Star
, which was named the best new series on television by multiple publications, and for penning the script The Beaver
, which went on to become a feature film starring Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson.
Howard Gordon, who is also an executive producers of the series as well as one of the writers, is not new to the business. He's served as executive producer on popular series such as The X-Files
, for which he won multiple Golden Globes, and others such as 24
, the latter for which he was responsible for developing for American television. Some of his other credits include the dramas Strange World
and The Inside
, both of which he created, as well as Buffy the Vampire Slayer
In addition, Gordon also finds time to write. His first novel published in 2011 was entitled Gideon's War
, and its sequel Hard Target
was released last month.
