As previously reported, the midseason series stars Jason Isaacs as Detective Michael Britten, who struggles with seemingly parallel lives. 

Jones (The Heiress, Doubt, "24") and Wong (M. Butterfly, "Law & Order") play Britten's therapists. Kyle Killen created the series. 

According to an earlier Playbill feature, "Regaining consciousness after a major car accident, Britten finds his world shattered when he learns that his wife Hannah perished but that his teenage son, Rex, has survived. As he tries to pick up the pieces of his life, he awakens again in a parallel reality in which his wife is very much alive, but his son Rex is dead from the car accident. In order to keep both of his loved ones alive, he begins living two dueling realities in parallel worlds — a delicate psychological tap dance that finds Britten torn in two, psychologically, and increasingly uncertain of his own sanity."
