Vulture broke the news today that 'Awake,' NBC's promising mid-season drama about a cop who travels between two different realities, is halting production for four weeks while executive producers Howard Gordon and Kyle Killen figure out how to move forward with the show.

"There's a certain trial and error process with any creative endeavor," Gordon said in an interview with AOL TV on Wednesday. "It's really a math and business decision married to a creative decision. We could have kept going, but we felt we could learn from our mistakes."
