REM renamed as 'AWAKE'

Post by Chari910 » Mon May 09, 2011 10:52 pm

Kyle Killen and Jason Isaac’s fantastic REM has been renamed Awake. Sources say that NBC is almost guaranteed to pick up Smash, Prime Suspect, and Awake.

Why would they rename it if they aren't picking it up?

Oh, no... I just became optimistic. I promised myself I wouldn't be. :oops:

Well I think it is positive. I like Awake better than REM for a title. REM sounds a little too SciFi for the plot.

Awake is a better name. Try explaining R.E.M. to other people. Besides R.E.M. is a pain to type out.

I hope it doesn't turn out like Lone Star where the critics loved it and everyone else hated it.

I watched the 2 episodes and while I wasn't wild about it I was surprised it was cancelled so fast.

Thanks Char.
I agree that the name change is good. REM? Do you type the periods? If you google it you get the group REM and the tons of stuff about rapied eye movement. "Awake" is much better.

I share the same opinion, ladies. Not everyone knows what REM means.
