ALMOST HUMAN will follow the week-to-week missions of JOHN KENNEX (Urban), a detective and sole survivor of a devastating police ambush, and his robot partner, DORIAN (Ealy), as this buddy-cop duo solve cases and fight to keep the lid on dangerously evolved criminals in this futuristic landscape.

The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Wyman and Bryan Burk. Kathy Lingg (“Person Of Interest,” “Revolution,” “Fringe”) and Reid Shane (“Fringe”) are co-executive producers.
