WATCH: Sneak peek trailer for Believe by J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón

January 23rd, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

We’ve got a cool new trailer for J.J. Abrams’ and Alfonso Cuarón‘s upcoming NBC TV series, Believe. The show is a sci-fi story that follows a young girl with superpowers and a death row inmate who breaks out of prison to protect her.

Cuarón wrote and directed the pilot episode, and also serves as an executive producer on the series along with Abrams.

Here’s the synopsis:

Levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, even predict the future… since she was two years old, Bo has had gifts she could neither fully understand nor control. Raised by a small group known as the “True Believers,” the orphaned girl has been safeguarded from harmful outsiders who would use her forces for personal gain. But now that she is 10, her powers have become stronger, and the threat has grown more dangerous.

With her life and future now in jeopardy, the “Believers” turn to the only person they see fit to be her full-time protector. That is, once they break him out of jail. Tate, a wrongfully imprisoned death row inmate who’s lost his will, is initially reluctant – until he witnesses one of her extraordinary abilities. Bo sees people for who they truly are… and who they may become.

Tate and Bo begin their journey, one in which trust must be earned. Traveling from city to city, every place they stop and everyone they meet will be changed forever. But they’ll have to keep going to stay one step ahead of the sinister forces after Bo’s power… because it will take a miracle to keep them safe forever.

The powers of a young girl may hold the fate of our world in “Believe,” from executive producer J.J. Abrams (Revolution, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and executive producer/writer/director Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men). One-hour drama.

Believe premieres on NBC on Monday, March 10th.
