This one we will have to wait on Maniacs. Sadly, Almost Human will not premiere until November 4th. The one thing I will say about this promo piece from Fox, boo on all the power words the cast say in this. How many times can we hear “new”, “exciting”, and “different” without rolling our eyes. The proof will arrive in November Fox. You are the ones that have to deliver.
The Plot: This action-packed police drama set 46 years in the future centers around the unlikely partnership between a part-machine cop and a part-human robot. Executive-produced by Emmy Award winner J.J. Abrams ("Fringe," "Lost," the "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" franchises) and creator J.H. Wyman ("Fringe," "The Mexican") and starring Karl Urban ("Star Trek"), Michael Ealy ("Sleeper Cell," "Common Law") and Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor ("Six Feet Under,"), ALMOST HUMAN is a high-tech, high-stakes action drama set 46 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely partnership is forged when a part-machine cop (Urban) is forced to pair with a part-human robot (Ealy) as they fight crime and investigate a deeper cover-up in a futuristic new world.
Almost Human arrives November 4th, 2013.
