Ain’t It J.J. Abrams News!! Bad Robot's Cuarón Sci-Fi Pilot About Protecting A Superpowered Girl Has A Pilot Order At NBC!!
NBC just ordered to pilot “Believe,” a sci-fi project from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot (“Lost,” “Fringe,” “Person of Interest,” “Revolution”) and writer-director Alfonso Cuarón (“Y Tu Mamá También,” “Children of Men,” “Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban”).
Bad Robot’s new sci-fi series “Revolution” is I believe the top-rated scripted series on NBC this season.
“Believe” follows a girl who will see her superpowers come to flower in seven years — and the man sprung from prison to protect her from those trying to hunt her down.
Cuarón’s “Children of Men” was about a man who comes to protect the only woman on the planet who can achieve pregnancy.
Cuarón will direct the pilot from a teleplay by Cuarón and Mark Freidman, who also created ABC’s forgotten 2009 Christian Slater series “The Forgotten.”
Minutes before the NBC announcement, Bad Robot saw Fox greenlight to pilot its project from “Fringe” showrunner J.H. Wyman about human LAPD cops who team with androids to fight crime.
