Humans is an eight part drama from AMC. The series is set in a parallel present where the must-have gadget is a 'Synth', a highly developed robotic human looking servant. The series explores the emotional impact that comes as the lines between humans and machines become increasingly blurred. At the center of the four concurrent storylines explored throughout Humans is the flawed but loving Hawkins family. Joe Hawkins believes the addition of a robotic servant to the household will give them back the time they so desperately need, but Laura senses something different about their new Synth Anita - there's something not right. Widower George Millican treats his out-of-date Synth Odi like a son. When the National Health Service gives him a new Synth named Vera after Odi malfunctions he must hide his bond with Odi or risk loosing him. Leo and his Synth Max are searching for someone and they have a mysterious man named Hobb on their trail who is trying to uncover a secret before it can destroy humanity. D.S. Peter Drummond works for the Special Technologies Task Force involved with solving Synth-related disputes. Since Synths rarely malfunction, he spends his time shuffling paperwork, until the day he investigates a case that defies all possibility. Writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley collaborated on the series. Humans is an adaptation of the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama Äkta människor (Real Humans). The show is executive produced by Jane Featherstone, Derek Wax, Henrik Widman, Jonathan Brackley and Real Humans creator Lars Lundström. The series will be made available in the US on AMC on June 28, 2015.
