"Humans" is a thrilling drama series, written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, 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 in appearance to humans. These incredible machines share our homes, our jobs and our lives and so become the objects of our fear, hatred, lust and even love. The Hawkins family struggles to put past events behind them. Their efforts are complicated further when they are unexpectedly drawn into battles being waged by their old conscious synth friends. As their emotional capabilities expand, the synths are pushed to the limit as they confront huge moral questions about their place in the world. While a mysterious organisation threatens to exploit the precious secret behind conscious synthetics, the possibilities and limitations of relationships between synth-kind and humankind are put to the ultimate test.
