Another Failed NYC TV Show
Believe was an American fantasy drama television series that broadcast as part of the 2013–14 United States network television schedule on NBC as a mid-season entry. Originally 13 episodes were to be aired, but only 12 were aired in the US. The series was created by Academy Award winner Alfonso Cuarón and Markus Friedman. The series began on March 10, was cancelled on May 9, and ended on June 15, 2014.
The main plot revolved around a young girl called Bo who was born with special supernatural abilities that she could not control. As these powers started evolving, the people who were protecting her were forced to turn to an outsider for help. This led them to William Tate, a wrongfully convicted death-row inmate, whom they break out of prison. Although he is reluctant to take on the role as her protector, the two eventually form a bond that guide them to helping each other, as well as others, while staying one step ahead of the evil forces that want the girl.
Jake McLaughlin was the first regular to be cast for the TV show and would play William Tate, father to Bo who was played by ten-year-old newcomer Johnny Sequoyah. Other more established actors included Delroy Lindo, Kyle MacLachlan, Jamie Chung and Trieste Kelly Dunn.
Areas of New York featured in Believe included Park Avenue near East 61st Street, Jane Street, 7th Avenue between West 114th and 155th Streets, and the antiques shop dressed up as pawn shop at the corner of 9th Avenue and West 43rd Street.
