Almost Human Trailer - Robots, Cops And More
J.J. Abrams has definitely kept himself busy in recent times, juggling responsibilities directing and producing properties including Fringe, Revolution, Star Trek, the upcoming Star Wars reboot and more. His latest pilot project is Almost Human, a rather refreshing looking TV show created by J.H. Wyman (Fringe) via Bad Robot Productions with Abrams on board as an executive producer.
The series is set 35 years in the future and follows the story of cop/robot hater John Kennex (Karl Urban) waking up from a coma only to find out that robotic partners are mandatory in 2048's equivalent of the LAPD. While dealing with a slew of personal issues and cyborg prosthetics as the result of the events that nearly killed him, Kennex has to learn to get along with his new 'synthetic' partner Dorian (Michael Ealy), an android outfitted with emotions. With it's high budget look and interesting premise, this might just be one of those shows to look forward to this year.
