First Look At Abrams' 'Almost Human', Greg Kinnear In 'Rake' and New Fox Lineup
Fox has released extended trailers to give us a taste of what to expect from its new shows next seasons. The network will introduce four dramas and six comedies. Let's start with JJ Abrams' futuristic action drama Almost Human set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. An unlikely partnership is forged when a part-machine cop (Urban) is forced to pair with a part-human robot (Michael Ealy) as they fight crime and investigate a deeper cover-up in a futuristic new world.

Rake, slated for midseason, stars Greg Kinnear as Keegan Deane, one of life's great addicts, a brilliant and frustratingly charming criminal defense attorney, whose chaotic and self-destructive personal life often gets in the way of his professional one. Keegan takes on the cases that nobody else will touch, ruled by a resolute optimism, belief in justice and dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption - much like himself.
Adventure thriller Sleepy Hollow is a modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's story, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity's last hope, forcing him to team up with a police officer (Nicole Beharie) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.

Surviving Jack, based on the book 'I Suck at Girls', stars Christopher Meloni as a man becoming a dad, as his son becomes a man, in a time before "coming of age" was something you could Google.
