Check out the trailer above for the new science-fiction series coming to AMC this June with Humans.
They look like us. They work for us. But they are not us.¬†
Humans, a bold new eight-part drama series from AMC, Channel 4 and Kudos, is set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a 'Synth' - a highly-developed robotic servant eerily similar to its live counterpart.
Written by British writing partnership Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (Spooks,¬†Spooks: The Greater Good),¬†Humans¬†is based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama¬†Real Humans.
"A lot of different types of jobs are automated now," says co-writer Sam Vincent. "Everything is automated with a kiosk now and there‚Äôs no guy at the counter. There's a real explosion of that happening and we wanted to reflect those social and economic trends...If we had something like the Synths we have on our show, that effect would be magnified a hundredfold, and that was quite interesting. We're really going quite deep into how society would change."
Humans, which stars William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Colin Morgan, Rebecca Front, Neil Maskell, and Gemma Chan, recently finished filming in and around London.
