Channel 4 & Xbox Entertainment Studios to Make a New Sci-Fi Show “Humans”

By   /   Apr 7, 2014

Microsoft’s Xbox Entertainment Studios is going to partner up with Channel 4 to bring a brand new sci-fi TV series called “Humans”. The show will run for a total of eight one hour episodes next year on Channel 4 in North America and UK.

The series will be a remake of a very popular Swedish show Real Humans that finished its second season couple of months ago. Humans will be written by the people behind the show Spooks, Sam Vincent and Jonathon Brackley.

The show is set in the present day universe where people keep robots named ‘Synths’ as their servants. It will follow the story of a father who purchases a second hand Synth that has a secret.

This is the second TV show for Microsoft, the first one was of course the Halo TV show which was announced at the Xbox One reveal show last year.

The drama boss at Channel 4, Piers Wenger stated:

In Humans, Sam and Jon have not only crafted an ingenious and imaginative thriller, but they’re also asking big, thought-provoking questions about how we live.

I’m thrilled to be working once again with the team at Kudos and to be partnering with Xbox to bring this extraordinary and epic series to the screen.

This is the first co-production commission to benefit from Channel 4’s increased investment in drama and reaffirms our commitment to ambitious, highly original drama series.
