Which is which? That’s the burning question that will surely keep the viewers on the anxious seat as one of the year’s most highly anticipated series begins.
Trying to keep both of his loved ones alive, Michael begins living in two dueling worlds. It’s understandable that he doesn’t want to know which universe is real. In one dimension, he and his wife debate having another child to fill the void left by the death of their son.
Meanwhile, in the other reality, Rex Britten, once a football player, takes refuge in tennis. He is coached by Hannah’s former doubles partner Tara (Michaela McManus, “The Vampire Diaries”).
In order to regain a drop of normality, Michael returns to solving crimes in both universes with the help of two different partners, Detective Efrem Vega (Wilmer Valderrama, “That ’70s Show”) and Detective Isaiah “Bird” Freeman (Steve Harris, “The Practice”). He finds himself in a muddle when details begin to cross over from world to world.
Helping Michael to balance his two realities are his bureau assigned therapists Dr. John Lee (BD Wong, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) and Dr. Judith Evans (Cherry Jones, “24”).
While both of them struggle to disembroil his two worlds, Michael has no interest in proving either one is a dream. However, things take an unexpected turn forcing him to confront the truth about what really happened the night of the accident.
