Alfonso Cuaron may have just won the Oscar for his space-set blockbuster "Gravity," but the director isn't slowing down just yet as next week he will head into television for the first time with NBC's supernatural thriller "Believe." Teaming up with executive producer J.J. Abrams, Cuaron co-created (with Mark Friedman) and directed the show's first episode, which airs on a special preview night, Monday, March 10 (after the Voice) before resuming on its regular timeslot on Sundays.

NBC has released the first two opening minutes of the Cuaron-directed pilot, giving a peek at the new drama that stars child actress Johnny Sequoyah as a girl named BO, whose supernatural powers seem to have attracted some deadly foes. In typical Cuaron fashion, the clip is a continuous camera shot that starts with a boom and ends with a crack!

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. ....
