As the Olympics arrive, so does a platoon of promotions for new NBC series that will launch March and beyond.

Some look interesting, or have interesting pedigrees, like this latest from J.J.Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón (who is up for an Oscar for "Gravity"). This almost seems like NBC has taken a hero from "Heroes" and built an entire series around her (Johnny Sequoyah, the child actor who stars).  Also with Delroy Lindo, and yes, that is Jake McLaughlin (in the clip), albeit a bit hard to recognize, from "In the Valley of Elah."

A good, bad or indifferent series? We'll get back to you on that, but there's certainly something of interest here. Premieres March 10.
