Less than a week after co-creator and executive producer Mark Friedman exited the series, NBC revealed the trailer for their upcoming high-concept drama TV show Believe.

Alfonso Cuarón, co-creator and execuctive producer alongside sci-fi mastermind J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek and the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII), debuted the trailer at last weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. Cuarón was there to show new footage from his upcoming space drama, Gravity, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

The short trailer features a stunning opening sequence that spells out the show’s plot rather efficiently. The show will center around a young girl named Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), who was born with some sort of supernatural gift that she cannot control. When her foster parents are killed in a failed attempted to kidnap the girl, her protectors turn to a wrongfully convicted death row inmate (Jake McLaughlin) to look after her.

Believe is set to make its debut on NBC in early in 2014, with many predicting a premiere shortly after the Winter Olympics. You can watch the trailer above. Cuarón’s Gravity will hit theaters on Oct. 4, and you can watch that trailer here.
