Among a small village of survivors in an isolated weapons facility, a reluctant young woman must decide how to keep her loved ones safe when she unwittingly finds the key that may change the course of Earth’s future.

The Wake is a 5-season long miniseries designed for online distribution. It’s epic scale with sci-fi intrigue and gritty, first-person drama. As technology advances by leaps and bounds each year, epic genre television is no longer solely the property of established studios and networks. The Wake is proof that thoughtful, dramatic, and polished looking programming can come from the hands of independent content producers.
