Karl Urban To Reunite With J.J. Abrams On Futuristic Pilot HUMAN
Urban, who previously worked with Abrams on the last two Star Trek films, is set to star in Fox's upcoming futuristic pilot Human, which deals with androids and is described as a "buddy cop show set in the near future".
According to TV Line, producer J.J. Abrams has hired Karl Urban - who previously worked with the busy director/producer on 2009's Star Trek - to star in his latest television pilot, Human. The Fox drama, penned by J.H. Wyman (Fringe), is a futuristic thriller that "is being billed as an action-packed buddy cop show set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids." Urban, who will reprise his role as Bones McCoy in this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness, will play 'John Kennex', "a respected police officer who has shut down emotionally after a tragic mission left him critically injured. He is paired with Dorian (Common Law‘s Michael Ealy), an android detective who, ironically, has a better grasp of humanity than he does." Minka Kelly, Lili Taylor, Michael Irby and Mackenzie Crook also star.
