Tomorrow FOX kicks off its special two-night premiere event of Almost Human
. Coming from executive producer J.J. Abrams and creator and executive producer J.H. Wyman, the new sci-fi action series is sure to be a hit.Almost Human
, which is set in the year 2048, follows Detective John Kennex, played by Karl Urban, who wakes up from a coma after surviving an attack on the police department. He has lost his leg, which has been replaced by a synthetic one, and most of his memory of the event, other than that his partner was killed.
When Kennex returns to duty, he finds that all of the officers are required to partner with androids, which he is very adverse to. He reluctantly agrees at the request of Captain Sandra Maldonaldo, played by Lili Taylor, but his partnership is short-lived when he ends it after the robot discovers some incriminating evidence against him.
