From Xbox Wire - Today Xbox Entertainment Studios and UK broadcaster Channel 4 announced an innovative partnership to co-produce "Humans," a bold new drama. The hour-long, eight-episode series will be produced by award-winning UK production company, Kudos ("The Hour," "Utopia," "Broadchurch"). "Humans" will share a premiere broadcast window on both the Xbox platform in North America and Channel 4 in the UK in 2015.
Written by British writing team Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley ("Spooks," "Spooks: The Greater Good"), "Humans" is an English-language adaptation of Sveriges Television and Matador Film's acclaimed series "Real Humans." "Humans" 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. In the hope of transforming the way they live, one strained suburban family purchases a refurbished synth only to discover that sharing life with a machine has far-reaching and chilling consequences.
