AWARD-WINNING ACTOR JOHN LARROQUETTE TO GUEST-STAR IN RECURRING ROLE ON "ALMOST HUMAN"

New Futuristic Action-Drama ALMOST HUMAN To Debut with Special Two-Night Series Premiere Sunday, November, 17, and Monday, November 18, on FOX

The future just got brighter. Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor John Larroquette ("Night Court") will guest-star in a recurring role on ALMOST HUMAN, the new adrenaline-filled drama set in 2048. The buddy-cop thrill-ride premieres with a special two-night series premiere on Sunday, Nov. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and Monday, Nov. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Larroquette, best known for his Emmy Award-winning performance on the comedy "Night Court," will recur as "Nigel," a genius roboticist who is sympathetic, highly intelligent and a bit broken. Larroquette is also known for his work on "The John Larroquette Show," "The Practice," "Boston Legal" and "Night Court." In 2011, he won a Tony Award for his Broadway debut in the revival of "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying," alongside Daniel Radcliffe.

In the "Pilot" episode of ALMOST HUMAN, airing on the first night of the special two-night series premiere Sunday, Nov. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), it's the year 2048, and an unprecedented increase in the crime rate requires every police officer to partner with an android. John Kennex (Karl Urban), a detective and sole survivor of a devastating police ambush, and his new robot partner, Dorian (Michale Ealy), set out on their first mission to solve a crime and protect innocent people from the dangerously evolved criminals in this futuristic landscape.

In "Skin," airing on the second night of the special two-night series premiere Monday, Nov. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Kennex and Dorian investigate a murder and high-profile missing persons case that leads them into the highly profitable world of IRCs - Intimate Robot Companions - also known as sexbots. Meanwhile, Kennex looks to reconcile a part of his troubled past.

Executive-produced by Emmy Award winner J.J. Abrams ("Fringe," "Lost," "Star Wars," the "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" franchises) and creator J.H. Wyman ("Fringe"), ALMOST HUMAN stars Karl Urban ("Star Trek"), Michael Ealy ("Sleeper Cell," "Common Law"), Lili Taylor ("The Conjuring"), Minka Kelly ("Friday Night Lights"), Mackenzie Crook ("Pirates of the Caribbean" franchises) and Michael Irby ("Law Abiding Citizen").

ALMOST HUMAN is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc., in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series was created by J.H. Wyman, who wrote the pilot. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Wyman and Bryan Burk. Kathy Lingg ("Person of Interest," "Revolution," "Fringe") and Reid Shane ("Fringe") are co-executive producers. Brad Anderson ("Fringe," "The Killing") directed and served as co-executive producer on the pilot. "Like" ALMOST HUMAN on Facebook at Facebook.com/AlmostHumanFOX.
