[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6066:]]Up for consideration at Fox Studios is a new TV series from J.J. Abrams set to star Karl Urban, Bones, of Star Trek fame.

Human would see Karl Urban play the role of police officer John Kennex who suffers an emotional shut down after a tragic mission that results in the deaths of nine fellow officers.

The series is set in the near future where police officers are paired with highly evolved human-like androids.

J.J. Abrams is on board Human as executive producer along with Fringe's J.H. Wyman, who is also writing the script.

Also starring in the potential new series is Michael Ealy as Kennex's android partner Dorian, Lili Taylor as the police captain, with Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook and Michael Irby co-starring.

THR notes if Human gets picked up and past the pilot stage it will be Karl Urban's first U.S. TV gig.
