WARNER BROS. TELEVISION PILOT SCREENINGS

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 10 · EMPIRE STAGE 1-E · 6:15 p.m.

· Almost Human: In the near future, technology and crime will increase so quickly that law enforcement will not be able to keep up. To maintain order and keep the public safe, all police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like-androids known as synthetics. From J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Production and Fringe executive producer J.H. Wyman, Almost Human follows Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban - Star Trek), and his synthetic partner Dorian (Michael Ealy - Underworld Awakening) as they fight a new strain of urban crime. Almost Human premieres Monday, November 4, at 8/7c on FOX.

· The 100: 97 years ago, Earth was devastated by a nuclear apocalypse, and mankind was nearly destroyed. The only survivors were the inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were in orbit at the time. The stations came together to form the Ark, but with resources dwindling and population growth soaring, the decision is made to send The 100, a group of juvenile delinquents, to the surface to test whether Earth is once again habitable. Starring Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Thomas McDonell, Marie Avgeropoulos, Bob Morley, Christopher Larkin with Isaiah Washington and Henry Ian Cusick, The 100 airs Midseason on The CW.

· The Tomorrow People: From executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow), Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries), Phil Klemmer (Chuck) and Danny Cannon (Nikita), The Tomorrow People is a story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Starring Robbie Amell, Luke Mitchell, Peyton List, Aaron Yoo, Madeleine Mantock and Mark Pellegrino, The Tomorrow People premieres on Wednesday, October 9, at 9/8c on The CW.
