Alfonso Cuaron and J.J. Abrams creating NBC pilot together

By Matthew Dougherty,

Two of the most celebrated minds in entertainment today, Alfonso Cuaron and J.J. Abrams, are getting together to work on a project for NBC.

Deadline describes the project as a high-concept drama about a girl with a gift and/or powers that will develop over seven years. A man recently sprung from prison will help her.

The pilot is being produced by Warner Bros. TV and Abrams’ own company Bad Robot.

According to ScreenRant, Cuaron will direct and co-write the pilot with Mark Friedman. If the show moves past a pilot, he will co-produce with Abrams.

This is Cuaron’s first foray into television, but the established film director has a worthy resume of well-received films, including Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Abrams, on the other hand, has had a large hand in bringing audiences Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest and NBC’s new ratings hit Revolution.

No word yet on when the pilot might air.
