Awake gets Russian remake

Awake has been sold to Russian, to be remade in Russian, I guess.

Awake, the police procedural-meets-fantasy drama, is being remade by Star Media in Russia for Channel One. The show has been picked up for an initial 12-part run with Evgeniy Mironov cast in the lead role.
How about an English revival with the same cast? I liked this show. :stirrer

Gosh. What's wrong with just broadcasting the original show? Jason is well known internationally and would draw viewers. I understand that there are differences among all the countries and how to depict their own lawlessness, but why reinvent an already great-working wheel?

Not too much of a Jason Fan, am I?

All the TV and movie industries seem to do is recycle old movies and shows. Why should the Russians be any different?
