What is “Believe?” “Believe” is a new NBC TV show produced by J.J. Abrams and set to premiere in 2014. The series stars Johnny Sequoyah as Bo, a young girl with special powers ranging from levitation and telekinesis to predicting the future. Bo was raised by the “True Believers,” a special group intent on protecting the young orphan from those who would abuse her powers and use them for personal gain, but as Bo gets older, her supernatural abilities get stronger, and the True Believers can no longer handle the job. They turn to Tate (Jake McLaughlin), a wrongfully accused death-row inmate they spring from jail, initiating the series of adventures NBC hopes will keep viewers coming back to “Believe.”

What is “Believe?” The NBC 2014 new TV show is described as a sci-fi adventure series, and it also stars Kyle MacLachlan, Delroy Lindo, and Sienna Guillory. As Bo and Tate move from town to town, trusting no one and trying to stay one step ahead of the law, will “Believe” capture the imaginations of a fickle TV-viewing public? Answering the question, “What is ‘Believe?’” the Huffington Post compares the new NBC TV series to “Heroes” and “Touch,” both of which dealt with characters with supernatural abilities.

Ask the question, “What is ‘Believe?’” of the slate of Huffington Post TV critics, and they’ll say this new 2014 TV show is a reason to get DVR, as most of them suggest recording the program rather than making a point of watching it live. Still, “Believe” has some clout, since J.J. Abrams has garnered such goodwill through such shows as “Lost,” and critic Laura Prudom thinks “Believe” could be a bright spot on NBC’s 2014 TV schedule.

“A high-concept, J.J. Abrams-produced, serialized mystery drama?” Prudom writes of “Believe,” previewing NBC’s new 2014 TV show. “Basically, this is everything I love to watch and everything America hates, but despite its silliness and ‘Touch’-esque premise, it has potential.”
