FOX’s ‘Almost Human’: Watch the Actual First Three Minutes of the Premiere
A few days ago, the folks at ‘Almost Human‘ caused a bit of confusion around the internet in placing an eight-minute sneak peek of the November 17 premiere online, which many erroneously reported as the “first” eight minutes of the pilot. Now, the J.J. Abrams-produced futuristic cop drama has released the actual action-packed first minutes, which you can watch right here!
Taking place in flashback, the opening of the new FOX series from ‘Fringe‘ head J.H. Wyman provides an important bit of backstory for series lead John Kennex (‘Star Trek‘ and ‘Dredd‘ star Karl Urban), showing a futuristic shootout that goes awry. The opening moments also set up an ongoing mystery that takes a shocking twist later on in the pilot, and will reverberate throughout the series to come.
Developed by ‘Fringe‘ team J.H. Wyman, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk, ‘Almost Human’ sees Kennex, a respected police officer who has shut down emotionally following a disastrous mission that killed nine fellow officers and left him critically injured. Former ‘Common Law‘ star Michael Ealy portrays his android partner Dorian, in front of a cast that includes Lili Taylor as the police captain, as well as Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook (‘Game of Thrones‘) and Michael Irby.
Well, what are you waiting for? Check out the real first few minutes of ‘Almost Human’ above, and tell us in the comments if you’ll check out the November 17 premiere!
