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

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

Cuaron concocted the idea for Believe, debuting March 10 on NBC, while shooting Gravity with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. He contacted Abrams, who came aboard as co-executive producer for the series starring Delroy Lindo, Kyle MacLachlan and Jamie Chung.

Cuaron joked Sunday to the Television Critics Association that after working in space, he wanted to do something where people weren't floating. The series revolves around a 10-year-old girl with supernatural powers who's pursued by sinister forces.
