VIDEO: Sneak Peek - 'Arrhythmia' Episode of FOX's ALMOST HUMAN
On the next episode of FOX's ALMOST HUMAN titled "Arrhythmia", Detective John Kennex and Dorian respond to a suspicious death at a hospital where - before having a fatal cardiac arrest - a man claimed someone was trying to kill him, and inexplicably knew his exact time of death.
As the investigation unfolds, a black market for vital organs is uncovered in which bio-mechanical hearts can be resold and remotely 'shut off.' As the team fights to find the pulse of this 2048 tech-centric crime, Dorian reconnects with a decommissioned DRN.
The all-new episode airs Monday, December 16th at 8/7c on FOX. Get a sneak peek below!
From Emmy Award-winning executive producer J.J. Abrams ("Fringe," "Lost," "Revolution," "Person of Interest," the "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" franchises) and creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman ("Fringe," "The Mexican"), comes ALMOST HUMAN. Starring Karl Urban ( the "Star Trek" and "The Lord of the Rings" franchises") and Golden Globe Award nominee Michael Ealy ("Sleeper Cell," "Common Law"), the new series is an action-packed police procedural set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.
The year is 2048. Meet Detective JOHN KENNEX (Urban), a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can't remember much – except that his partner was killed, he lost one of his legs and he is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage.
Suffering from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the "psychological rejection of his synthetic body part," John returns to work at the behest of longtime ally Captain SANDRA MALDONADO (Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor, "Six Feet Under," "Ransom"). By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with a battle-ready MX-43. But he abruptly terminates his partnership after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. So technician RUDY LOM (Mackenzie Crook, "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise) introduces John to DORIAN (Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these "flaws" that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian's understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them.
