'Believe' Trailer: NBC Debuts Ominous Two-Minute Preview
Days after Alfonso Cuaron picked up a best director Oscar for the sci-fi blockbuster Gravity, NBC has a released a new promo for the series premiere of sci-fi drama Believe.
The clip -- billed as the first two minutes of the series -- starts with a prominent mention of Cuaron's Academy Awards win. The show begins in horror movie fashion with an apparent family driving along a rainy and dark highway road at night before the drive goes terribly awry, including a horrific car crash spurred by mysterious pursuers.
The plot of the show revolves around a girl, Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), with a variety of supernatural powers that's being chased by evil forces and protected by a group of people who wish to ensure her safety. The two-minute clip ends on an ominous note.
The series is executive produced by J.J. Abrams and also stars Jake McLaughlin, Delroy Lindo, Jamie Chung and Arian Moayed. The show has set a March 10 premiere date.
