“It’s single-handedly the script that made me really intrigued by television again. It’s a show about this detective who gets in a car accident on his way home from dinner with his wife and son. In the accident he loses his son, he goes to sleep, wakes up the next morning, realizes his son is alive and his wife was the one who died in the accident,” Wilmer explains.

“Awake” premieres tonight on NBC at 10/9c.
