There are plenty of reasons to watch this new featurette for Fox‘s upcoming series Almost Human. One, it’s from J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman (Fringe). Two, you start getting an even better feel for what the show is like. And three, because the actors talk about the show in their “regular” voices, we get to hear New Zealander Karl Urban pronounce the word “future” like “fyoo’ cha”. I’d watch for that reason alone:
Featurette: Almost Human – Fox Fall Preview
And since it’s been a little while since we’ve told you, here’s the synopsis again:
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”) and Michael Ealy (“Sleeper Cell,” “Common Law”), 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 in a futuristic new world.
And oh what the heck, here’s the first trailer, too:
