Oscar-nominated director Alfonso Cuaron is trying television for the first time, teaming up with producer JJ Abrams on a new series.

The two have known each other for about 20 years and JJ was eager to work with Alfonso, who is up for a best director Oscar for Gravity, the category he won at the Golden Globes.

Alfonso concocted the idea for Believe while shooting Gravity with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

He contacted JJ, who came aboard as co-executive producer for the series starring Delroy Lindo, Kyle MacLachlan and Jamie Chung.

Alfonso joked at the Television Critics Association that after working in space, he wanted to do something where people were not floating.

The series revolves around a 10-year-old girl with supernatural powers who is pursued by sinister forces.
