Fox has gone all out today by revealing its entire schedule for 2013-2014, and dropped the full previews for all of them. And while Giant Freakin’ Robot isn’t too invested in Dads or Sleepy Hollow, we are definitely looking to partner up with Almost Human, the sci-fi robo-buddy cop drama from Fringe creator J.H. Wyman and executive producer of everything else J.J. Abrams, whose name is like a mating call around these parts.
Set in the year 2048, Almost Human will follow LAPD officer John Kennex (Karl Urban), who was involved in a life-threatening accident which left him in a two-year coma, all because his mandatory robotic partner traded his own safety for that of others. Kennex is given bionic parts to assist in his recovery, and once healthy, he returns to the force. He is soon paired up with Dorian (Michael Ealy), a human-like android who has far more personality than his updated brethren — of course, that bit of unpredictable behavior is exactly what Kennex isn’t looking for. Together, Kennex and Dorian will take down whatever criminal element in present in future L.A., presumably while trading deprecating one-liners.
