Fox has released an extended trailer for the new upcoming series Almost Human.  Executive produced by J.J. Abrams and Fringe showrunner J.H. Wyman, the series is set in the not-too-distant future where human cops enforce law alongside android partners.  Karl Urban plays a human cop with a synthetic leg and a clear prejudice against robots who is assigned a robot partner, played by Michael Ealy.  The buddy cop genre isn’t exactly a novel idea, but as with most network series, execution is the key to success.  Wyman found a groove with Fringe that conjured up a loyal fanbase, and with Almost Human he and Abrams appear to be playing in a more commercial-friendly sandbox.  Urban’s a charming fella and the world building appears to be strong, so hopefully Almost Human delivers the goods.
