Karl Urban Cast in J.J. Abrams' Robot Cop Drama HUMAN

Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd) is teaming back up with J.J. Abrams for a new TV series for Fox called Human. The series in a high concept idea that's described as "an action-packed buddy-cop show set in the near future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved humanlike androids." 

THR reports that Urban will play the leading role in the series. The character's name is John Kennex, "a respected police officer who has shut down emotionally after a tragic mission that claimed the lives of nine of his fellow elite officers and left him critically injured."

The script for the series is being written by Fringe's J.H. Wyman, so with all this awesome talent involved, there's a solid chance that this series is going to be great! If the network ends up liking the pilot and picks it up as a series it will be Urban's first series-regular role on U.S. TV.
