Although producer and writer J.H. Wyman says he has a grand design for Almost Human and a feature film storyline behind it all, his overall goal is to keep the show from traveling down the generic 'dark future' path of many sci-fi stories.
When you think about shows or movies that are placed in the future, the tendency is it rains all the time and the atmosphere is messed up. In the future, you’re telling me that no one has a 7-year-old daughter that they have a birthday party for and maybe buy her a present? Nobody’s happy? I don’t believe that.
Although the buddy cop formula may have initially turned off some viewers and critics, Wyman plans on sticking to the thirteen episode plan of entertaining episodes that don't alienate viewers with heavy sci-fi dialogue or complicated plots.
I want the world to connect, I’m always writing about the same thing — life is valued by the human connections that we make. “Fringe” was heavy at times for me. This is lighter, more fun, I’m trying to make it a little bit more of a fun pill.
They've definitely created what feels like a fleshed-out world, interesting characters surrounding the stars, and hints of a grander story behind the weekly formula. Hopefully viewers (and Fox) will stick with the show long enough to see all the piece come together.
