New FOX show 'Almost Human' premieres Sunday, Monday

Posted: Updated:

The FOX Network's latest show from Emmy Award-winning executive producer J.J. Abrams, Almost Human, premieres Sunday and Monday nights on FOX Carolina.

Starring Karl Urban, from the "Star Trek" and "The Lord of the Rings" franchises, and Golden Globe Award nominee Michael Ealy, from "Sleeper Cell" and "Common Law," the new series is an action-packed police procedural set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.

In 2048, Detective John Kennex (Urban) is a cop who survived a catastrophic attack made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, Kennex can't remember much – except that his partner was killed, he lost one of his legs and he is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage.

Kennex later gets a new android that was discontinued and has unexpected emotional responses. Though they're considered flaws, John relates to Dorian (Ealy), the robot.

As he adjusts to working with his new partner, Kennex has to learn to get along with his new colleagues, including human intelligence analyst Detective Valerie Stahl, played by Minka Kelly from "Friday Night Light" and " "(500) Days of Summer," and the distrustful Detective Richard Paul, played by Michael Irby from "Law Abiding Citizen" and "The Unit", who does not welcome John back with open arms.
