In the year 2048, horrifically high crime rates brought on by uncontrolled technological progress have led to every human police officer being assigned an android partner for safety, record keeping, and making sure they adhere to procedure. After almost two years in a coma after walking into an ambush that got the rest of his squad killed by the criminal organization [=InSyndicate=], Detective John Kennex is brought back onto the force to investigate attacks similar to the one which took out his team.

After almost two years in a coma after walking into an ambush that got the rest of his squad killed by the criminal organization [=InSyndicate=], Detective John Kennex (Creator/KarlUrban) is brought back onto the force to investigate attacks similar to the one which took out his team.

But rules are rules, so Kennex needs a new android partner. The only one left is DRN "Dorian," a decommissioned model designed to be as human as possible--removed from service due to being [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor too emotional and hard to control]]. Kennex is surprised to find himself forming a bond with Dorian, and the two work together to take down the dangerous criminal organization [=InSyndicate=].

* {{Expy}}: Your mileage may vary, but to Asimov fans, this series has a few shades of [[TheCavesOfSteel Elijah Baley and Daneel Olivaw]] in the characters of John Kennex (dislikes robots on general principle) and Dorian (a robot with near-human abilities). Dorian even has the Asimovian tradition in his name, being an expansion of his model line's initials DRN.

* ButNotTooBlack: Both Dorian and the ex-girlfriend. Of course, it's likely that Dorian is played by Michael Ealy ''because'' he looks unusual. The MXs come across as similarly racially ambiguous.

Added DiffLines:
* CutShort: Kennex's traitorous girlfriend, Dorian's dreams, Vaughn's master plan, what's beyond the wall....just a few of the plot points the show introduced and never got a chance to resolve, due to its cancellation.

Added DiffLines:
* NinetyPercentOfYourBrain: In Episode ''Brain Brothers'', one trial witness mentions having undergone the "Cerebellix Procedure", and Dorian explains that it's an unproven method to increase the percentage of brain usage in human beings.
