'Human' (FOX)

Logline: In the near future, all LAPD officers will be partnered with "highly evolved human-like androids." Why we're interested: If you're going to try high-concept sci-fi, why not trust the "Fringe" team of J.H. Wyman, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk? They're behind this show starring Karl Urban (Bones in the "Star Trek" movies and recently very impressive in the cult favorite movie "Dredd"), Michael Ealy ("Common Law"), Lili Taylor ("Six Feet Under"), Mackenzie Crook (U.K.'s "The Office") and Minka Kelly ("Friday Night Lights"). That's more than enough to pique our interest. -- Geoff Berkshire, Zap2it
