by Doc on Sep.23, 2012, under Television
J.J. Abrams is teaming up with Oscar-nominated director Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) to develop a fantasy drama series for NBC about “a girl in possession of a great gift/powers — which will come into their own in seven years — and the man who is sprung from prison to protect her from those trying to hunt her down.” Cuarón will direct and co-write the script with Mark Friedman (Home of the Brave, The Forgotten), with it being produced by WBTV and Abrams’ Bad Robot.
NBC has given a pilot production commitment.
