According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC has announced that Jason Isaacs’ new TV series, Awake, is scheduled to debut March 1.

Awake is a sci-fi crime drama and Isaacs plays a police detective, Michael Britten, who awakens after a car accident involving his wife and son.  Britten moves between two realities where in one his wife dies and the other his son dies.  Britten starts living a double life, attempting to keep both wife and son alive, while noticing strange links between the realities.

Over on Entertainment Weekly they’re reporting that J.J. Abrams has sold a sci-fi apocalypse pilot to NBC titled Revolution.

“A high octane action drama from J. J. Abrams following a group of characters struggling to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously ceased to exist.”

This is the second descriptive blurb released for Revolution, but the first sounded distinctly familiar to TNT’s Falling Skies.  What with Awake debuting in March, Falling Skies returning in the summer, and Revolution set for the fall, at least it won’t be a total TV desert when it comes to scifi.

George Lucas is at it again and we can already hear the fanboy wailing.  EW also has an article on Lucas changing puppet Yoda to digital in The Phantom Menace 3D.  I don’t know how good  the film will be in 3D, but it’s going to be fun to watch the dilemma for the fanboys who will probably be torn between their disdain for TPM and their reactionary ranting regarding any changes to the Star Wars films.

Movie Debuts:

Big Miracle:  Drew Barrymore, Kristen Bell and John Krasinski

The Woman in Black: Daniel Radcliffe

Star Wars Books has posted their third excerpt from Troy Denning’s upcoming novel Apocalypse.

“Plan C,” Bazel rumbled.

“Yeah,” Allana said. She popped up behind Bazel, then cradled the huge blaster pistol in her elbow and extended one hand above her head. “It’s what Grandpa would do.”

“Plan C?” Leia asked, not sure she really wanted to know. “What’s Plan—”

“The last thing they’ll ever expect,” Allana explained.

FOTJ: Apocalypse comes out March 13th. You can check out the previous excerpts here: #1, and #2.

Author Paul S. Kemp has posted the latest excerpt from his upcoming novel The Hammer and the Blade. Here’s a snippet:

She smiled shyly, sat, and nodded at the wand. “What’s that?”

“’This? This is nothing, just one of my gewgaws, as Egil would say. I took it from the tomb of an Afirion wizard-king after defeating the devil that guarded it.”

He spoke casually, but his words summoned the response he’d hoped for. Her eyes widened with wonder and she made a circle of her ring finger and thumb, a protective gesture, the symbol of Orella. She leaned in close to him, and he felt the warmth of her through his clothes. Her hair smelled of vanilla and the scent made him more lightheaded than Gadd’s smoke.
