TV News: Could NBC Be Losing Faith In Alfonso Cuaron & J.J. Abrams' BELIEVE?

Every show has teething problems but Believe seems to be having more than its fair share. Co-creator and executive producer Mark Friedman departed the show in July and now current showrunner Dave Erickson is leaving.

Stepping into the vacated showrunner spot is director Jonas Pate who already has episodes of the show in the can. This is the second showrunner change Believe has had before it has even premiered, which surely can’t bode well.

The latest change will send the series into an early production hiatus to accommodate a smooth transition between showrunners. 

Below is the official synopsis for the show.

Levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, even predict the future… Since she was two years old, Bo has had gifts she could neither fully understand, nor control. Raised by a small group known as the “True Believers,” the orphaned girl has been safeguarded from harmful outsiders who would use her forces for personal gain. But now that she is 10, her powers have become stronger, and the threat has grown more dangerous. With her life and future now in jeopardy, the “Believers” turn to the only person they see fi t to be her full-time protector. That is, once they break him out of jail. Tate, a wrongfully imprisoned death row inmate who’s lost his will, is initially reluctant – until he witnesses one of her extraordinary abilities. Bo sees people for who they truly are… and who they may become. Tate and Bo begin their journey, one in which trust must be earned. Traveling from city to city, every place they stop and everyone they meet will be changed forever. But they’ll have to keep going to stay one step ahead of the sinister forces after Bo’s power… because it will take a miracle to keep them safe forever. The powers of a young girl may hold the fate of our world in Believe, from executive producer J.J. Abrams (Revolution, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and executive producer/writer/director Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Gravity).
