New sneak peek for J.J. Abrams' and Alfonso Cuaron's TV series Believe is pretty convincing

J.J. Abrams has had great success with television, from series' like Felicity to Alias to Lost to Fringe to Revolution to Almost Human and beyond. His next venture to the small screen is a collaboration with GRAVITY director Alfonso Cuaron for Believe, a sci-fi drama that stars Delroy Lindo, Jake McLaughlin, Jamie Chung, Rob Morgan, and Johnny Sequoyah. The pilot episode is directed by Cuaron, which adds some serious cinematic clout and this new sneak peek trailer for the series is a pretty convincing argument that Abrams and co. may have done it again.

Take a look:

Show synopsis:

Believe is about an unlikely relationship between a gifted young girl and a man sprung from prison who has been tasked with protecting her from the evil elements that hunt her power.

With all that said, the problem is that this is a show that hinges on a old/young dynamic and that's always a rocky boat. The latest series to tip over that hinged on that premise was Kiefer Sutherland's Touch, which was eventually cancelled, putting Sutherland back in the boots of his more successful former show, 24. Believe has potential though, and with Abrams, Cuaron, and Delroy Lindo's voice there are at least a few reasons to check out the first episode.

Believe debuts on Monday, March 10, 2014 after The Voice on NBC.

If Alfonso Cuarn is involved, I'll give it more than a fair chance.

I've been watching Almost Human and, while the chemistry behind Karl Urban and Michael Ealy is undeniable, the show itself feels dated and the writing weak.

Maybe I've been spoiled by shows like Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, etc., but to me Almost Human, along with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., feels like a chore to get through.

extra tidbit: I love Almost Human the chemistry between Michael Ealy and Karl Urban is great

This looks pretty cool. Why is this guy picked to be her protector? I guess we will see.

I'm actually liking Almost Human a lot more than I thought it would. Sure, it's nothing you haven't seen before and it owes a huge debt to the Elijah Baley and R. Daneel Olivaw stories by Isaac Asimov, but the production values are high, Karl Urban and Michael Ealy have entertaining chemistry, there's some good action and Minka Kelly is perfection.

looks great, but main dude protecting her looks all kind of wrong. For a hardened criminal he looks like a pansy!!!

Almost Human is awesome. If you're not watching it, you're doing yourself a big disservice.
