The Fox series Almost Human, from creator J.H. Wyman (Fringe) and executive producer J.J. Abrams, is a high-tech, high-stakes action drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely and intriguing partnership is forged when part-machine cop, John Kennex (Karl Urban), is forced to pair with the part-human android, Dorian (Michael Ealy), to investigate what is clearly a deep cover-up. The show also stars Lili Taylor, Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook and Michael Irby.
During this exclusive interview with Collider, executive producer J.H. Wyman talked about how much the series has evolved from the pilot, that he likes to plan out exactly where he’s taking the arc of a story, how important it is for him to portray a hopeful interpretation of the future, staying true to the larger picture, how each of the main characters essentially have their own full-length feature film, unspooling in episodic segments, and that he had a five-year plan for the show. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
