J.J. Abrams on What Sets ALMOST HUMAN Apart from the Other Bad Robot Shows

November 7, 2013 by  

J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production company has been behind some of the best (and nerdiest) shows of the past decade and a half (FELICITY, ALIAS, LOST, FRINGE are a few of the former shows, while PERSON OF INTEREST and REVOLUTION are currently on the air), and on Sunday, November 17th, Fox will debut the Bad Robot latest show: ALMOST HUMAN, a futuristic cop drama created by former FRINGE boss Joel Wyman.

Given the wide array of shows Bad Robot has produced, I asked Abrams during a conference call to promote ALMOST HUMAN what he felt set this show apart from all the other ones he’s had a hand in before.

“The story is very different than anything we have ever done before,” Abrams noted. “The type of show — it is pretty much a cop, procedural show, which is a very familiar show, we’ve seen a million buddy-cop shows. And the fun of that was twisting it in a way which Joel came up with, which it is set in a place and with [this array of] characters that allows for conflict and cases every week that don’t feel like everything you’ve seen a million times before.”

“And, I think this show has a level of humor that is distinct from what we’ve done before,” he continued. “Part of [that humor] is the relationship between Karl [Urban (John)] and Michael [Ealy (Dorian)]’s characters.”

ALMOST HUMAN’s two-night series premiere event kicks off Sunday, November 17th at 8 PM on Fox, followed by its time period premiere, Monday, November 18th at 8 PM.
