Description: Levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, see the future… since she was born, Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) has had gifts she could neither fully understand nor control. But now that she is 10 years old, her powers have become stronger and the threat from malevolent forces that would use her abilities to control the world has grown more dangerous. With her life and future in jeopardy, Bo’s protector, Milton Winter (Delroy Lindo, “The Chicago Code”), turns to an unlikely source to keep her safe – Tate (Jake McLaughlin, “Crash”), a wrongfully imprisoned death row inmate who’s lost his will.
Tate and Bo begin an extraordinary journey, one in which trust must be earned. On the run and traveling from city to city, every place they stop and everyone they meet will be changed forever. But they’ll have to keep going to stay one step ahead of the sinister forces after Bo’s power… because it will take a miracle to keep them safe forever. NBC.com
Why Was It Cancelled? This series started out with decent numbers when it premiered on Monday night with The Voice as its lead-in. But its ratings sank quickly when it moved to its regular Sunday 9 PM EST timeslot where it had to contend with ABC’s new surprise hit Resurrection as well as ratings juggernaut The Walking Dead in the same hour. Its numbers continued to sink and even the pedigree of executive producers Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams could not help it as it was preempted and shuffled off to a Summer burn-off run.
