'Sleepy Hollow' (Nicole Beharie), 'Almost Human' (Michael Ealy) Picked Up by Fox

Alex Kurtzman/Bob Orci‘s Sleepy Hollow starring Nicole Beharie and the JJ Abrams/J.H Wyman co-production Almost Human, starring Michael Ealy, are among the drama series pilots picked up by the Fox network.

Almost Human, also starring Karl Urban and Lily Taylor,  is described by Deadline as an action-packed police drama set ahead 35 years into the future, at a time when police officers and human-like androids are teamed up. Things get interesting when a cop “with an aversion to robots and a robot with unexpected emotional responses investigate cases in a brave new world.”

Sleepy Hollow is a modern day retelling of the Washington Irving classic. The action-adventure follows Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) as he is resurrected and sent through two and a half centuries of time to discover the modern world is “on the brink of destruction”. It’s up to Crane to save humanity with the help of Nicole Beharie, who plays police officer, as they solve an ancient mystery.
