TV News: NBC's TIN MAN Finds its Star

Patrick Heusinger, probably best known to UK viewers as Lord Marcus Beaton in GOSSIP GIRL, has been cast in the leading role in NBC’s TIN MAN. No, this isn’t a reboot of Syfy’s mini-series from a few years back; instead, TIN MAN is a psychological crime thriller set in the near future that focuses on fugitive robot Adam (Heusinger) accused of first-degree murder, who may hold the key to the future of human evolution, and the young female public defender forced to fight for his cause. Adam, a robotic valet, became a murder suspect after his builder and master was found stabbed to death.

Now I might be wrong, it’s been a few years since I last read them, but I’m fairly sure that this was the premise for one of Isaac Asimov’s Robot stories. Hmm…

Although I don't recall a specific Asimov story like that, the series sounds like it will share elements with the 2004 film I Robot, the plot of which was "suggested" by Asimov's short story collection of the same name.
