J.J. Abrams Goes Behind The Scenes Of 'Almost Human' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

J.J. Abrams has a lot on his plate these days with the future of both the "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" franchises in his hands, but he has set aside some time to return to TV as executive producer on the new Fox series "Almost Human."

Set 30 years in the future, "Almost Human" is Abrams' latest foray into sci-fi. It depicts a future so violent that each police officer is assigned an android partner. Abrams and fellow executive producer J.H. Wyman have re-teamed after working together on "Fringe" for their latest series which gives the buddy cop formula a robotic twist when detective John Kennex (played by Karl Urban) is assigned an android partner played by Michael Ealy. Minka Kelly from "Friday Night Lights" and Lili Taylor also star.

"The fun of the show is to see what's possible, the potential of what's just around the corner and the beauty of a TV series is, if you're lucky, you get to continue doing that," Abrams says in the video above.

In the video above Abrams and Wyman show a sneak peek at the futuristic crime drama. If sci-fi and crime procedurals are two of your favorite genres, then check out the video and watch "Almost Human" when it premieres next month on Fox.

"Almost Human" debuts Monday Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
