(from NBC's press release, April 2018) NBC has set premiere dates for its new immersive-reality drama series "Reverie," starring Sarah Shahi and Golden Globe Award nominee Dennis Haysbert, as well as last summer's #1 new scripted series, "Marlon." "Reverie" will launch Wednesday, May 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT immediately following NBC's popular summer alternative series "American Ninja Warrior." From Mickey Fisher, the creator of "Extant," this grounded new thriller follows Mara Kint (Sarah Shahi), a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behavior who became a college professor after facing an unimaginable personal tragedy. But when her former boss, Charlie Ventana (Dennis Haysbert), brings her in to save ordinary people who have lost themselves in a highly advanced immersive virtual-reality program in which you can live out your wildest dreams, she finds that in saving others, she may actually have discovered a way to save herself. The cast also includes Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jessica Lu and Kathryn Morris.
