We've seen Showtime on a major talent kick of late, developing new dramas from the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and 'Dexter''s own Michael C. Hall, and its latest proves no less exciting. Former 'The Wire' and near-'Game of Thrones' star Dominic West will headline the drama pilot for 'The Affair,' but will the new marital drama prove as Emmy-winning as Showtime's other adult fare?
Based solely on its premise, 'The Awakening' looks like a pretty standard horror film, a tale of Woman Visits Haunted Academy, Haunted Academy Terrifies Woman. Then you notice the cast, which includes tremendous talents like Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton. Then you watch the trailer, which is simply dripping with atmosphere and dread. Yep, it looks like we'll have to keep an eye on 'The Awakening.'
