'Believe' series premiere: Did Alfonso Cuaron's series convert you?

Among the biggest selling points of the "Believe" series premiere is that the episode was directed by Alfonso Cuaron, who just won an Oscar for "Gravity" and has also helmed "Children of Men," "Y Tu Mama Tambien" and arguably the best of the Harry Potter movies, "Prisoner of Azkaban."And, indeed, the "Believe" pilot is beautifully directed. The tense opening sequence showcases masterful camera work, and there are several other visually arresting moments throughout the first hour, along with a pace that propels you past some of the shakier elements of the show.Therein lies the problem with "Believe": There are pieces of the show that are underdeveloped or just plain don't work very well in the pilot (which Cuaron also co-wrote), which to some extent Cuaron's gifts as a director help cover. But though he'll probably retain some level of involvement with the show, he won't be directing any other episodes.

'Believe': J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron create families under fantastical circumstances

One theme that runs through much of J.J. Abrams' work as a writer and producer is family, from the ad hoc families of the college students on "Felicity" and the castaways of "Lost" to the father-daughter drama of "Alias," the husband-wife drama of "Undercovers" and the father-son drama of "Fringe."Whatever situation the characters land in - and some of these shows have very fantastical premises -- the core of the story is people struggling with, or forming, close family bonds.Expect more of the same when Abrams' latest project, "Believe," premieres Monday, March 10, on NBC. Created by Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity") and Mark Friedman for Abrams' Bad Robot Productions -- with Jonas Pate and Hans Tobeason as the current showrunners -- it centers on 10-year-old Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a precocious girl who was also born with a range of unusual powers, including levitation, telekinesis and precognition.But she's not fully in control of what she can do,... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/believe-jj-abrams-alfonso-cuaron-create-families-under-fantastical-circumstances.html

‘Believe’ Review: a Good Girl in Need of Darth Vader

'Believe': Watch the Alfonso Cuaron-directed opening scene of NBC's new series

NBC is wisely touting that the premiere of its new series "Believe" was directed by newly minted Oscar winner Alfonso Cuaron. Now it's letting you see some of his handiwork.Above, you can watch the first two minutes of Monday's (March 10) series premiere, and it's an impressive one. You won't discern much about the story -- other than that little girl Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) is special, and bad people are after her -- but it's easy to marvel at the craft of the scene, which at least appears to be one unbroken take.Cuaron also co-wrote the pilot and serves as one of the show's executive producers. "Believe" premieres at 10 p.m. ET/PT Monday following "The Voice," then moves to its regular home at 9 p.m. Sundays starting March 16.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/03/believe-watch-the-alfonso-cuaron-directed-opening-scene-of-nbcs-new-series.html
