Show Description

In this one-hour drama from acclaimed filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mamá También), J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions (Lost, Revolution, Person of Interest, Fringe, the Mission: Impossible and Star Trek movies), a young girl with supernatural powers is placed under the protection of an escaped Death Row inmate who must shield her from the mysterious forces out to hunt her down. Bo is a bright and feisty girl who's lived with foster parents all her life. She also has emerging supernatural powers. A mystery to everyone including herself, she is sought by those who want to protect her -- as well as those who seek to exploit her gift. Enter Death Row inmate Tate. Slated for execution for a crime he did not commit, the estranged Tate is rescued by the resourceful Milton Winter, whose revolutionary and idealistic operation also includes his more than capable right hand, Channing. In return for his freedom, Tate is tasked with looking after the independent young girl whose untested powers have a transformative effect on everyone she meets -- even the jaded Tate. At the same time, the unlimited wealth and resources of multinational businessman Skouras have been focused on acquiring the gifted girl and harnessing her powers. Skouras will stop at nothing -- including murder -- to collar the girl. Endlessly on the run, the fugitive Tate and Bo travel from city to city, evading their relentless pursuers, transforming the lives of those they encounter and growing closer as they discover more about themselves and what they truly believe.
