This action-packed police drama set 35 years in the future centers around the unlikely partnership between a part-machine cop and a part-human robot.
The year is 2048. Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban, Star Trek) is 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. By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. A technician introduces John to Dorian (Michael Ealy, Sleeper Cell), 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.
