Alfonso Cuarón Teams Up With J.J. Abrams on NBC Series 'Believe'

Alfonso Cuarón may have racked up 10 Oscar nominations, picked up Golden Globes for ‘Best Director’ and 'Best Picture', and taken home a handful of SAG and PGA awards...but the Mexican filmmaker isn’t showing any signs of slowing down!

The Gravity director has set his sights on the smaller screen, and will teaming up with producer J.J. Abrams to premiere the sci-fi drama Believe on NBC on Monday, March 10. A sneak peek of the upcoming series premiered on Monday.

According to The Huffington Post, the new TV project focuses on a ten-year-old girl, Bo, who has extraordinary, supernatural abilities which she’s unable to control, such as levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, and psychic powers. As the young girl’s powers grow, so do her enemies. Her protector, Milton Winter, enlists the help of Tate, a wrongfully imprisoned man to help keep Bo safe. As Tate and Bo escape the malevolent forces, they also form a strong attachment. 

The show will star Jake McLaughlin, Arian Moayed, Jamie Chung, Rob Morgan, and Johnny Sequoyah
