Fox announced today that Almost Human has been sent to series and will run from some point part way into the next TV season. It’s a buddy cop story in which both buddies are part human, part machine – just to different degrees.
We have Karl Urban as the cop with machine bits and Michael Ealy as the robot with human bits.
Here’s the official trailer. I wish it did more to sell the chemistry between Urban and Ealy – assuming, of course, that they have some.
The show was created by J.H. Wyman, showrunner of Fringe, and it’s produced by Bad Robot. I imagine we’ll see a lot of fuss and hype around the first episode at least.
