First Look at the J.J. Abrams-Produced Almost Human TV Drama
Where the robots, man?
Oh wait. That’s Michael Ealy. He’s playing the “robot” in the new J.J. Abrams-produced android/cop show “Almost Human”. Karl Urban plays the human who doesn’t like robots. What a concept!
The Fox show is due this coming season, which is either 2013 or early 2014.
The action-packed police drama is set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely connection is forged when a cop with an aversion to robots and a robot with unexpected emotional responses investigate cases in a brave new world.
The show also stars Lili Taylor, Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook, Michael Irby, and Mekia Cox.
Brad Anderson directed the pilot.
