Show Summary

"We have discovered a deeper stage of sleep that allows us to travel into your dreams. As you descend, focus on my voice... We will be with you in your dreams..." Sleepwalkers was a sci-fi mystery show that aired as part of NBC's Thrillogy (along with Profiler and The Pretender) in the fall of 1997. The show revolved around Dr. Nathan Bradford (Bruce Greenwood) who was the head of the team that had developed a technology to enter the dreams of psychiatric patients to discover what their true problems were. He also used the machines to enter the unconscious mind of his wife, Gail Bradford (Kathrin Nicholson) who was in a coma. The other members of the team were Kate Russell (Naomi Watts), the scholar of the group, with a vast knowledge of mythology and archetypes from many religions and Vincent Konefke (Abraham Benrubi) who was the technical guy who ran the machines but never dreamwalked himself, and Steve Turner (Michael Watson). In the first episode Ben Costigan (Jeffrey D. Sams) was introduced and he joined the team after the death of a sleepwalker. Although 9 episodes of the 12 originally ordered were shot, the series was cancelled after just 2 episodes aired. Some US and Canadian stations ran the next 5 episodes in the spring of 1998 and in Britain and Finland all 9 were shown. A number of episodes have been released on DVD (region 2) in Germany as "The Sleepwalker Project".moreless
