Default Believe (JJ Abrams\Alfonso Cuarón's)

From IGN

Quote:


NBC have begun picking up their new fall series, and for the second day in a row – following FOX picking up Almost Human -- a new series from J.J. Abrams has been ordered. Just ordered to series, NBC’s Believe comes from the impressive pairing of Abrams and filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men). Believe is about a young girl with special powers (Johnny Sequoyah) being protected by an escaped convict (Jack McLaughlin). Cuarón co-wrote and directed the pilot with Abrams serving as an executive producer.

Also picked up by NBC is the comedy About a Boy, based on the hit film. Jason Katims, who has already successfully adapted two other films for NBC (Friday Night Lights and Parenthood) is executive producing About a Boy.

NBC's other new picks ups (so far) are the new Sean Hayes comedy, Sean Waves the World and the Secret Service drama Crisis, starring Dermot Mulroney and The X-Files’ Gillian Anderson.

NBC have already given a straight-to-series order to Michael J. Fox's new comedy.

Update: NBC have now also given a series order to the comedy The Family Guide, starring Parker Posey, J.K. Simmons and Harold Perrineau. Simmons is currently appearing on ABC's Family Tools (he's on a Family kick) which is not expected to be renewed.

Warner already had it taken down. I'm guessing the trailer wasn't supposed to be put up yet since it's a midseason show. Otherwise you would think NBC would have put it up themselves like they did for other shows like The Blacklist.

I'll watch it cause it sounds cool and J.J. obviously has faith in it to produce it but it's always a hit or miss when he's not the one actually creating it. At least he's co-created Almost Human so will be surprised if that sucks :P

It's almost here.


The "Special Preview" arrives on March 10th @ 10pm, before the actual beginning tof the series on Sunday March 16th @ 9pm.

Anything involving JJ Abrams + Alfonso Cuaron and Kyle MacLachlan (Sienna Guillory appears way low on the billing cast, so I don't how much she'll be involved, could be just for one ep) should get at least a chance

First "premiere event" tonight, regular schedule starts next Sunday.

USA today isn't too kind with the premiere... or the show itself.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/t...eview/6166677/

Quote:
'Believe' leaves a lot of doubts

Believe what, exactly?

That there's a little girl with undefined mystical powers whom bad guys want and good guys have sworn to protect? We've gone that route before, recently in Touch and usually with scant success, but OK — what's one more time?

Believe that recent Oscar winner Alfonso Cuarón, who co-created the show and directs Monday's pilot (* * ½ out of four, NBC, 10 ET/PT), and Star Trek director/Star Wars rebooter J.J. Abrams are going to take time from their film careers to give the show the attention it needs when both have movies in production? Maybe. Experience says no, but you never know when a project is close to someone's heart.

But believe that NBC can properly shepherd this action/fantasy along, despite the plot-collapse fiasco that was Heroes and is Revolution? That could be one suspension of disbelief too many.

The vaguely superpowered child here is Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a bright little girl with powers she (and we) can't yet understand. Parentless, Bo has been shuffled from foster home to foster home by a group led by Delroy Lindo's Winter, who has sworn to keep her safe.

Unfortunately, the bad guys — led by Kyle MacLachlan's Skouras — have found her and killed her latest foster family. So for her next protector, Winter chooses Tate (Jake McLaughlin), a wrongly imprisoned death-row inmate whom Winter frees and then coerces into guarding Bo.

Naturally, Bo and Tate do not get along. Bo — who Sequoyah plays with a nice mix of innocence and brattiness — thinks Tate is mean, stupid and burdened by anger issues, an assessment that may leave many viewers nodding in unhappy agreement. Tate thinks Bo talks too much and listens too little, as when she wanders away from their escape plan to go help a doctor she just met.

In case you were wondering what Believe would do from week to week, that Fugitive-like setup appears to provide the answer. Tate and Bo will be on the run, pausing from city to city just long enough for Bo to use her powers to help some stranger of the week.

As you'd hope from an hour directed by Cuarón, Monday's premiere moves swiftly and surely, with well-shot action sequences and bursts of visual flare, led by a nightmarish image of birds coming to Bo's rescue. Small touches of humor mix with large doses of pseudo-spiritual sentiment: Had one more character expressed belief in another or urged another to believe in himself, the show would have been a prime candidate for TV's next drinking game.

Yet for all those flourishes, nothing really shakes that feeling that it's all been done before and it won't end well. Bo's powers — which up to now include the ability to move objects, control animals, read feelings and tell the future — are dangerously open-ended. When a hero can do anything, risk and interest disappear. And while the episode does eventually explain why Winter chose Tate, nothing we see in the character or the performance is likely to convince you he made the right choice. Oh, and if that choice means we see less of Lindo, who gives the hour's most entertaining performance, it will be a bad one indeed.

Maybe the show can overcome those hurdles. Maybe this will be the one child-saves-the-world show that finally works.

But I'll believe it when I see it.
I'll still give this a chance, so we'll see.

Alfonso Cuaron is the creator of the series and wrote and directed the 1st episode. I think it has potential to be a good supernatural series, but there is just so much on and it's moving to Sundays at 9pm in an already super crowded night.

I get that people on message boards like this have very limited time to take on new midseason shows so it needs to grab them right away.

BTW, why the hell is JJ Abrams in the thread title? As I just said, Alfonso Cuaron is the creator of the show, not JJ.

JJ's TV credits nowadays are "In Name Only"

Because back when it was announced last year his name was listed in the article title. I somehow missed Alfonso's name but that is why.

Last I checked JJ Abrams was still going to be the executive producer for this, the same as he currently is for Revolution and Almost Human.

J.J. doesn't get a creator's credit, but he is still one of the Executive Producers. It is true that his name shouldn't be in the thread title anymore though.

JJ has been working on Star Wars for the past year. He's a non-writing/creative EP like Jerry Bruckheimer for his TV work. His production company makes the shows like Believe, Almost Human, Revolution & gets them pitched to the networks, but he's not involved with the show day to day. I believe the last time JJ had any involvement creatively with scripts and directing on TV was the failed NBC show Undercovers.
