What happens when robots become so human that they can barely be distinguished from real people? When they can even be our lovers?
In the drama series Real Humans we enter a world where the Hubot is as natural a possession as the modern car – just as sought after, loved, and hated. Many people already own a hubot and even more dream of acquiring the latest model.
The Hubots have transformed human existence once and for all and it is hardly possible to imagine a world without them. The Hubots can perform both dangerous and monotonous work. They take care of old and lonely and have a role wherever there is a lack of a human being. But the Hubots create new problems and dilemmas. Who is responsible for the Hubot’s actions? Should Hubots have some kind of “human rights”? And eventually the ultimate question arises – What exactly is a human being?
The first season of Real Humans was a huge international success, sold to some 50 countries. It has also been awarded at Prix Italia and Seoul Drama Awards. The second season was aired in Sweden during the winter 2013/2014.
