Fox orders sci-fi, paranormal show pilots

Abrams, courtesy E
Two of the four new pilots the Fox Network has just announced they're ordering are making us very happy.
They all actually sound interesting but two delve into the realm of the paranormal.

According to E! Online, one of the busiest men in show biz, J.J. Abrams, will be teaming with J.H. Wyman (Fringe) and Bryan Burke on the drama, Almost Human.

Almost Human is described by E! as a "buddy cop show set in a future where all LAPD officers are paired with human-like androids." The series will star Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness), Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), and Lili Taylor (The Conjuring).

Meanwhile, the executive producers of Fringe will be also deliver Sleepy Hollow. We love the sound of this series which is a "modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's classic tale finds Icabod Crane (Tom Mison) time-traveling two and a half centuries and teaming with a police officer to save humanity.

There is no news on when these shows will start shooting or will air but you can be sure we’ll be keeping an eye on them.
