Did you know, nearly 500 scripted series aired on US TV in 2017? While some live on to be very successful others are left by the cancelled wayside abandoned by viewers.
As a way to honor our fallen and forgotten shows of yesterday, The Koalition is looking back through a series of interview of better times when actors were excited about their premiere.
Today, The Koalition takes a look back at NBC’s Reverie featuring Dennis Haysbert. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the first season of 10 episodes premiered on May 30, 2018 on NBC. On November 6, 2018, NBC canceled the series after one season.
Reverie, starring Sarah Shahi and Dennis Haysbert, premiered on May 30 and averaged 2.1 million viewers in Live+same day, the smallest viewership for an NBC original series this past summer.
From Extant creator Mickey Fisher, thriller Reverie followed Mara Kint (Shahi), a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behavior who became a college professor after facing an unimaginable personal tragedy. But when her former boss, Charlie Ventana (Haysbert), brings her in to save ordinary people who have lost themselves in a highly advanced immersive virtual-reality program in which you can live out your wildest dreams, she finds that in saving others, she may actually have discovered a way to save herself.
