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.

    Robots that look exactly like humans, so boring.

    Done too many times to count, and its a typical way to just save money because they won’t take the extra time to actually have robotic characters done in CGI.
