Channel 4 has released a new picture for new 8-part drama Humans, featuring actors Ivanno Jeremiah & Merlin‘s Colin Morgan, who play ‘Synth’ Max (Jeremiah) and Leo (Morgan).

Made by Kudos for Channel 4 and AMC, Humans, 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 to its live counterpart. In the hope of transforming the way they live, one strained suburban family purchases a refurbished synth only to discover that sharing life with a machine has far-reaching and chilling consequences.

The drama also stars William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Rebecca Front, Neil Maskell and Gemma Chan.
