Sea­son 1 M-Net (*101) 00:00 Sci-fi

The only ex­pla­na­tion for peo­ple shar­ing a dream is some­thing paranormal. And that’s what is go­ing on in sea­son 1 of sci-fi show Fall­ing Wa­ter (2016-cur­rent), when three strangers dreams parts of the same dream. Episode 1 starts with a voice warn­ing view­ers that “there is a war go­ing on, a war for con­trol of our dreams”. And the warn­ing isn’t over: “Now you can be­lieve me or not, but what if your dreams are try­ing to tell you some­thing? What if they’re try­ing to tell you your life is at stake?”

Tess (Lizzie Brocheré, Clau­dine in pe­riod drama Ver­sailles, 2015-cur­rent ) is a trend an­a­lyst who reads con­sumers’ as­pi­ra­tions. But she starts doubt­ing her skills (and san­ity) when she dreams that she has a son and thinks that it’s not a dream. Tech bil­lion­aire Bill Bo­erg (Zak Orth) be­lieves Tess and wants to help her, but she has to take part in his re­search. Bur­ton (David Ajala) is the se­cu­rity boss at fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion The Firm and is also hav­ing “the dream”. his part fea­tures the mys­te­ri­ous “Woman In Red”, who helps him when he’s run down in a car ac­ci­dent. Film­ing two dif­fer­ent sto­ry­lines isn’t as tricky as you’d think, says David. “We have a con­ti­nu­ity lady on the set who’s won­der­ful. She helps us with tran­si­tion­ing from the real to the dream world.” And third is de­tec­tive Taka (Will Yun Lee, Sang Min in ac­tion se­ries Hawaii Five- 0, 2010-cur­rent). He’s car­ing for his co­matose mom in real life but dreams about an old lady in the road. How are they linked? “It’s a mys­tery that en­cour­ages dream­ing and to em­brace that world,” teases Will.

Tess is shar­ing her dreams with other peo­ple.
