Fox Fall 2013: Almost Human

Quote:
ALMOST HUMAN From Emmy Award-winning executive producer J.J. Abrams (“Fringe,” “Lost,” the “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible” franchises) and creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman (“Fringe,” “The Mexican”), comes ALMOST HUMAN. Starring Karl Urban (“Star Trek”) and Michael Ealy (“Sleeper Cell,” “Common Law”), the new series is an action-packed police drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. The year is 2048. Meet JOHN KENNEX (Urban), a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can’t remember much – except that his partner was killed; his girlfriend, ANNA MOORE (guest star Mekia Cox, “Crazy, Stupid, Love.,” “Undercovers”), left him after the attack; and he lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage. Suffering from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the “psychological rejection of his synthetic body part,” John returns to work at the behest of longtime ally Captain SANDRA MALDONADO (Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor, “Six Feet Under,” “Ransom”). By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with a battle-ready MX-43. But he abruptly terminates his partnership after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. So technician RUDY LOM (Mackenzie Crook, “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise) introduces John to DORIAN (Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these “flaws” that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian’s understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them. As he adjusts to working with his new partner, John also must learn to get along with his new colleagues, including the eager and somewhat starstruck Detective VALERIE STAHL (Minka Kelly, “Friday Night Lights,” “(500) Days of Summer”) and the distrustful Detective RICHARD PAUL (Michael Irby, “Law Abiding Citizen,” “The Unit”), who does not welcome John back with open arms. ALMOST HUMAN will follow the week-to-week missions of John and Dorian, as they fight crime across this futuristic landscape, while the mysteries surrounding his attack and the larger mythology of this new world unfold. ALMOST HUMAN is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series is created by J.H. Wyman, who wrote the pilot. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and Wyman. Kathy Lingg (“Person of Interest,” “Revolution,” “Fringe”) and Reid Shane (“Fringe”) are co-executive producers. Brad Anderson (“Fringe,” “The Killing”) directed and served as co-executive producer on the pilot.

PRODUCTION COMPANIES: Warner Bros. Television, Bad Robot Productions, Bonanza Productions Inc.

EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, J.H. Wyman

CO-EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS: Brad Anderson (pilot), Kathy Lingg, Reid Shane

Half the time I can't remember my cellphone number. But I can remember "Holmes and Yo-Yo."

Sometimes I walk into a room and can't remember why I went there. But when my son says "clay," I can instantly respond in my best Alan-Rickman-faux-American accent: "Clay. Bill Clay."

Tell me about it. The only reason I remember yesterday was because it featured my favorite baseball team collectively shitting themselves in the World Series.

But the Charm of Making from Excalibur? I can recite that on demand, and sound exactly like Nicol Williamson while doing it.

For Urban to do a network TV series, you've got to wonder if he's strapped for cash and needs a steady paycheck.

More likely he just wants to stay put for a while if he can to hang out with his family more. The moving of film production to dozens of different countries has really good actors jumping to tv to settle down a bit. The lure of potentially a few years in Vancouver might just sound like a great deal.

Show looks to have some promise, and those are some seriously handsome men. I'm not one to watch something shitty just for eye candy, but it might get me to give it a chance!

It was a surprise to me seeing him on the small screen, for sure, although the lines between TV and Movie acting is pretty much non-existent these days, all kinds of stars cross back and forth.

Two night series premiere, with episodes on Sunday and Monday. Hoping it will be good.

You'd have thought he was well paid for Star Trek, RED and Dredd. Maybe its because I don't think there will be a sequel for Dredd.

Shit, I was like that before I got old. Half the time I can't remember what I was doing 30 seconds ago. And it was exactly the same 20 years ago.

But I remember books and movies cold.

Getting panned in reviews. Sounds like it might be another Bad Robot miss.

There was also a TV comedy in the 70s called "Holmes and Yo-Yo" where a cop had a robot partner.
