Shortly after pushing back its premiere, Fox has released the first seven minutes of Almost Human. It's the new sci-fi drama from J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman (Fringe). It's headlined by Star Trek alum Karl Urban and Michael Ealy (Common Law), who play the ultimate odd couple.
Almost Human is set in a future where synthetics, aka androids, are the norm. In this case, the troubled detective John Kennex (Urban) is partnered with one called Dorian (Ealy). Unlike most robots, Dorian actually shares more human characteristics than his new co-worker.
Kennex has fallen from grace after an earlier mission that went terribly wrong. We're talking deathly wrong. It was enough to make anyone want to throw in the towel. Luckily, he's still hanging on, and he's faced with his biggest challenge. Will it take an android to remove that giant chip on Kennex's shoulder?
Almost Human also stars Lily Taylor and Minka Kelly. The series debuts Sunday, Nov. 17, on Fox.
