Filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón just won the Oscar for Best Director, but you don’t have to wait long to see the talented director’s next project.  In the midst of the very lengthy post-production process on Gravity, Cuarón made his first foray into television by writing and directing the pilot for NBC’s new drama series Believe.  The network has now released the first two minutes of the show online ahead of its Monday premiere, and it’s fittingly one of the director’s signature long, unbroken shots.  The story centers on a wrongfully-imprisoned death row inmate who is broken out of jail in order to protect a young girl with powerful abilities.  Cuarón also serves as an executive producer on the show alongside J.J. Abrams, and this is definitely a promising opening for the show.

Hit the jump to watch the first two minutes of the series.  The show stars Johnny SequoyahDelroy Lindo, and Kyle MacLachlanBelieve premieres on NBC Monday, March 10th at 10pm ET.

    Uh … don’t know what you’re talking about Collider. I watched the sequence, and it’s clearly NOT one long continuous shot.

      Well its clearly trying to come across as one shot. But there’s clearly some subtle cuts throughout the scene.
