Catch Michael Ealy In Tonight's Season Premiere Of 'Almost Human' On FOX (Trailer)

Fox primetime is all-set to heat up even more, with the adrenaline-fueled drama Almost Human, joining the already hot Sleepy Hollow, to debut with a special 2-night premiere, first tonight, Sunday, November 17, followed by another episode tomorrow, Monday, November 18, right before Sleepy Hollow, making for a Monday night one-two punch for Fox going forward – assuming Almost Human attracts a significant audience as well.

Almost Human will precede Sleepy Hollow regularly on Monday nights, starting at 8pm (replacing Bones, which will move to Fridays).

From executive producer J.J. Abrams and creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman, comes Almost Human, starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, in a new series set in 2048, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. 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 involving dangerously evolved criminals in a futuristic landscape.

The series is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc., in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television

Brad Anderson directed and served as co-executive producer on the pilot.

The actor Mackenzie Crook, aka Rudy Lom or just plain Rudy in Almost Human, played the pirate Ragetti in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. (


The show was entertaining.


This was the show I anticipated the most this fall season from the moment it was announced. It was pretty good actually. It's from the same team that did "Fringe" so if it's as good as that, then I will be happy. And as far as Michael Ealy's casting, I'm happy for the brother and think if this show takes off, it can make him a "mainstream" star. In the sense people other than Black folks will learn who he is. It appears the producers went with color blind casting for the role of Dorian and that has to be applauded. Because they easily could have cast another Abercrombie and Fitch model type for this role.


As always, a black has to play the "other."
