New NBC Dramas CRISIS, BELIEVE Pulled from Line-Up

TVGuide.com reports that NBC has pulled its two freshman dramas, Crisis and Believe from their programming schedule.

Crisis, featuring actors Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney was scheduled to air on May 18, the final Sunday of the all-important May sweeps. The Peacock Network has also pulled Believe from that evening's lineup. In place of the two dramas, a re-broadcast of the two-hour "Women of Saturday Night Live" special will air beginning at 9/8c.

Both shows were currently in the middle of their 13-episode runs, but have been delivering disappointing ratings since they debuted earlier in the year. Do details have been released as to if and when the shows will return.

About BELIEVE:

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.

Also starring are Jamie Chung ("Once Upon a Time"), Arian Moayed, and Kyle MacLachlan ("Portlandia," "Desperate Housewives.")

The series comes from executive producers J.J. Abrams ("Person of Interest," "Revolution," "Fringe," "Lost," "Super 8," the "Mission: Impossible" and "Star Trek" movies, upcoming "Star Wars"), Alfonso Cuarón ("Gravity," "Children of Men," "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," "Y Tu Mamá También"), Bryan Burk ("Person of Interest," "Revolution," "Fringe," "Lost"), Jonas Pate ("Deception," "Prime Suspect," "Caprica") and Hans Tobeason ("Damages," "Saving Grace," "V," "Cult.")
