J.J. Abrams’ Almost Human is a buddy cop show set 35 years in the future. It stars Karl Urban as John Kennex, a robot hating detective, and Michael Ealy as Dorian, his robot partner. Hopefully, Dorian will fare better than his last partner.
A sneak peek reveals that Kennex disposed of his standard issue MX-43 android after it threatened to report him for exhibiting symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) from an explosion that left him part synthetic. Lab technician Rudy Lom (Mackenzie Crook) explains that the only model left is a DRN, or Dorian, which was decommissioned for being emotionally unstable.
Abrams describes Kennex and Dorian as damaged goods but together they complement each other.
Almost Human premieres Sunday November 17 8/7C on FOX.
