Following the exciting announcement earlier this month, NBC presented its fall line-up last week at Radio City Music Hall. Apparently, the trailer for Believe was left out of the Upfront presentation (source) but Cuarón, Abrams, and members of the cast were in attendance (source) and on the red carpet to promote their new series (photos below). TV Fanatic caught up with Cuarón, Johnny Sequoyah (Bo), and Delroy Lindo (Winter) and asked about the concept.
“It’s a clash between innocence and experience, and this young lady [Bo] is in the centre. She’s kind of the fulcrum around which all of this activity is taking place,” explained Lindo. Cuarón also discussed how the show came to be, including his initial reluctance about television, and Abrams’ encouragement, “Just do it the way you would like to do a show.”
We just approached it as if we were doing small films.
While NBC is yet to officially* release the trailer, it’s already started up the social media machine, including Twitter and Vine, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook, and Google+ accounts, as well as an official site for the new series. Believe will premiere mid-season with the Sunday 9pm time slot (source).
* Yesterday morning, Bleeding Cool’s Brendon Connelly had gotten his hands on and shared the official trailer and pilot screenplay, but has since removed both at the request of content owners, Warner Bros. However, someone was able to capture the trailer before the video went down, so you do have a chance to see it until we hear more from NBC…
