Watch This Trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Believe And Tell Us What You Think [VIDEO]

You wouldn’t know it from this trailer, which proudly trumpets only J.J. Abrams‘s executive producer credit, but NBC’s upcoming Believe was actually co-created by Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón.

But the teaser… maybe it’s just that it’s early and I’m pre-breakfast, but it doesn’t grab me like I thought it would. The show looks really generic. White dude with a troubled past rescuing people. Whoopee. But hey, trailers have been misleading before. And Jamie Chung being there pleases my Mulan-loving heart.

What do you think?

And then it’s all just traveling around, doing good deeds while on the run from them. You know, them.

I’ve been looking forward to Believe since I first heard about the Alfonso Cuarón-written and directed show about a girl with superpowers because… it’s an Alfonso Cuarón-written and directed show about girl with superpowers. I’m not sure what else I need to say here.

Now I know a bit more about what I’m looking forward to, as three of the show’s female characters, including its lead, have been cast. Oh hi there, Jamie Chung!
