Though it was an extraordinarily unusual pilot season—with most shows not getting far into the annual process before COVID-19 shut things down—NBC did order DEBRIS, which was able to do a decent amount of filming of its first episode.

Check out photos from the first episode of the series, which stars Jonathan Tucker and Riann Steele, and was created by former FRINGE boss J.H. Wyman

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

Next up, ALMOST HUMAN…

ALMOST HUMAN premieres tonight, and the series takes us 35 years in the future — crime has skyrocketed, and to help combat it, humans have mandatory orders to work with android partners.

And yet, ALMOST HUMAN creator J.H. Wyman (who also showran FRINGE for multiple seasons) is hopeful about the future.

When I spoke with Wyman about his new show, I was curious about his thoughts about what set it apart from the other procedurals or pieces of futuristic fiction out there…and he had a very thoughtful answer for me:

ALMOST HUMAN: Karl Urban on the Appeal of the Show, Working with Michael Ealy, and More

ALMOST HUMAN star Karl Urban has spent most of the last decade of his career working on movies (he previously was Caesar on XENA and HERCULES), so it took a very special project to draw him back into the television world.

“It was obviously, firstly, having the opportunity to work with J.J. [Abrams, Urban’s STAR TREK director and ALMOST HUMAN executive producer] again, whom I absolutely adore,” Urban told me of deciding to take the role of John Kennex on the Fox series, a futuristic buddy-cop drama. “I think he’s one of the most talented artists currently working in film and television. [And ALMOST HUMAN creator,] Joel Wyman, I was a huge fan of [his work on] FRINGE, so that was a huge draw.”

“And then it was, quite simply, reading the script and getting drawn into this world and getting drawn into the character of Kennex,” he continued. “A character who is damaged goods, a character who is trying to reclaim his life; a life that was stolen from him…living in a coma for two years [after an injury sustained during an ambush], and then coming back from that, trying to pick up the pieces. For me, that’s a really interesting starting point.”

And while ALMOST HUMAN is getting the latest start of all the new network fall dramas, Urban was gratified by the response the show’s first episode got at this summer’s Comic-Con panel.

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

November 7, 2013 by  
Filed under Almost Human

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.

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN: Watch 8 Minutes of the Pilot

ALMOST HUMAN — the new futuristic cop drama from FRINGE boss J.H. Wyman and uber producer J.J. Abrams — is getting a big launch post-football on November 17th, but if you can’t wait until then, Fox and Hulu have released a snippet of the pilot online early.

These eight minutes aren’t actually the start of the pilot, but it does introduce you to a fair amount of characters in the world, including the first meeting of Karl Urban’s John Kennex and Michael Ealy’s Dorian.

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN Exclusive Video: Meet Michael Irby’s Richard Paul!

almost-human-featured-2

We’re less than three weeks away from the debut of Fox’s new drama, ALMOST HUMAN (a “buddy-cop” show set 35 years in the future — where crime rates have risen and every cop is partnered with an android — from former FRINGE boss J.H. Wyman), and while we’ve given you an intro to Michael Ealy’s Dorian, it’s about time to meet some of the people who will be helping to solve these futuristic crimes, don’t you think?

“Richard Paul lives on the edge,” ALMOST HUMAN star Michael Irby previews of his character in the exclusive featurette below. “He won’t take a bribe, but if he needs to bend the rules a little bit to get that conviction or to get that arrest, he’ll do what he has to do. He kind of goes against the grain, which I think is great that they hired me, because that’s kind of how I live my life.”

Take a look at the video for more from Irby, including his take on life in the future, footage of the other characters snarking on Richard (and him throwing some shade of his own), and more…

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN’s Michael Ealy on Working with Karl Urban: ‘The Chemistry is Growing’

almost-human-featured-2

In two weeks (Update: Fox has opted to push the premiere back to Sunday, November 17th), Fox will debut its final new fall series, ALMOST HUMAN, a “buddy-cop” show set 35 years in the future — where crime rates have risen and every cop is partnered with an android — that explores what humanity really means. (To give you a sense of the tone/show, it was created by FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams who did FRINGE/LOST/ALIAS/STAR TREK, etc.)

At the center of the series are Karl Urban’s John Kennex, a newly reinstated detective who was injured in a massive police ambush and has only partnered with humans pre-injury, and Michael Ealy’s Dorian, an android (model DRN) whose kind was created to be as human as possible, but has since been taken off the streets…who have become reluctant new partners. And as with any show where there’s one key relationship, the actors are aware their chemistry needs to be on point.

“The chemistry is growing episode after episode,” Ealy told me last month (in the video below), after the duo had completed a handful of hours. “We still work every episode on how to make it better.”

What else did Ealy have to say about his working relationship with Urban? Take a look…

Comments Off on ALMOST HUMAN: J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman on Finding the Right Balance for Mythology Versus Procedural Elements

When you see the names of former FRINGE showrunner J.H. Wyman and J.J. Abrams (the man behind ALIAS, FRINGE, and LOST…not to mention the director of the recent STAR TREK reboots and the upcoming STAR WARS sequels) associated with the new Fox series, ALMOST HUMAN (a crime-drama set 35 years in the future where human cops are partnered with human-like androids), it’s easy to assume the series will be another FRINGE-like drama that draws heavily on serialized storylines.

But when both men sat down with reporters earlier this week at Abrams’ Bad Robot production offices, they reiterated that this show isn’t quite as similar to FRINGE as you might think.
