AMC, Channel 4 and Kudos are working on a new sci-fi drama series called Humans, starring William Hurt (Dark City, The Incredible Hulk). It’s an eight-episode show that takes place in a parallel present where families own a Synth, a robot servant. Well, widower George Millican (Hurt) bonds with an out-of-date synth named Odi (Will Tudor), and he treats him more as a son than a piece of machine.

The series is written by British writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks, Spooks: The Greater Good) and is based on the Swedish sci-fi Real Humans.

The series also stars Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Colin Morgan, Rebecca Front, Neil Maskell, and Gemma Chan. It will premiere on AMC summer 2015.
