Beside ROBOCOP remake coming soon with Joel Kinnaman and the new J.J.Abrams sf show ALMOST HUMAN with Karl Urban, we shall also see futuristic cops in THE RAVEN!

STAR CROSSED SF SHOW
ALIEN & HUMAN LOVE STORY
The second trailer is for a more romantic type of sf show! Previously called OXYGEN and now retitled into STAR CROSSED, it will be a kind of a futuristic Romeo and Juliet with Matt Lanter and Aimee Teegarden portraying a pair of "star-crossed" lovers - one human, one alien - who go to a high school together. Ten years after aliens Atrians had crashed on Earth and warred with humans they've acclimatized themselves to Earth and now some of the young aliens are sent to a human high school to test the feasibility of their integration. The eyes of the nation and the whole world are fixed on this historical social experiment, an endeavour fraught with suspicion and fear.
