Fox has released an extended trailer for the new upcoming series Almost Human.  Executive produced by J.J. Abrams and Fringe showrunner J.H. Wyman, the series is set in the not-too-distant future where human cops enforce law alongside android partners.  Karl Urban plays a human cop with a synthetic leg and a clear prejudice against robots who is assigned a robot partner, played by Michael Ealy.  The buddy cop genre isn’t exactly a novel idea, but as with most network series, execution is the key to success.  Wyman found a groove with Fringe that conjured up a loyal fanbase, and with Almost Human he and Abrams appear to be playing in a more commercial-friendly sandbox.  Urban’s a charming fella and the world building appears to be strong, so hopefully Almost Human delivers the goods.

Here’s the official synopsis for Almost Human:

ALMOST HUMAN – 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 35 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.
