Fox Orders Fall Dramas From Trek Alumni


Four dramas were ordered by Fox for this fall season, and two of the shows come courtesy of J.J. Abrams, and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

The two shows ordered by Fox are: Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow.

J.J. AbramsAlmost Human is “an action-packed police drama set thirty-five years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely connection is forged when a cop with an aversion to robots and a robot with unexpected emotional responses investigate cases in a brave new world.”

Karl Urban will be starring in Almost Human along with Michael Ealy and Lili Taylor.

The other show, Sleepy Hollow, comes from Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. In Sleepy Hollow, “a modern-day retelling of Washington Irving‘s classic. Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is resurrected and pulled two-and-a-half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie) to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the Founding Fathers.”

    Wonderful. Now bring me the head of Bob Orci.

    I’d rather have the heads of the Orci haters. Enough already, Bad Robot & company have resurrected Star Trek. If you don’t like it, stop whining and go watch your DVDs & Blu-rays. I promise, they are still there.

    So it doesn’t matter if he’s a bad writer as long as the movies make money?

    What’s it like having zero integrity and being creatively bankrupt?

  • He didn’t say that. By “resurrected” he may have meant attracting more people to the franchise that had been dwindling for a while. And don’t go and say that fans of the new films aren’t real Star Trek fans. I got my girlfriend to watch the 2009 film, she enjoyed it, and now I got her into watching TNG because of it. You’re entitled to your opinion of him as a writer but don’t put words into someone else’s mouth.

    I’m not exclusive. There is room on my shishkebab skewer of shame for Kurtzman and Lindehof as well. I have no hatred in my heart; just a low tolerance for lazy, lowest-common-denominator screenwriting.
