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. Abrams‘ Almost 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.”
