Humanoid Resources is a half-hour mockumentary about the last non-AI department in an increasingly automated, Star Trek-like universe: HR. Linda, the people-pleasing head of HR, struggles to make a world that’s more diverse than we could ever imagine, see eye to eye. (Or eye to weird bumps that are totally normal in your species. #allbodiesarebeautiful)
The series follows Linda, a computer program that was written to replace her, and a cohort of alien and human coworkers, either too insignificant or maladjusted for more exciting careers. This motley team must confront the biggest challenges of the space age… on an interpersonal level. Each episode they confront an HR nightmare, determined to make space a safe space.
In addition to the disaster of the week (asexual reproducers demanding maternity AND paternity leave combined, since they are both mother and father, etc…), Linda and her office are in a constant fight for their jobs. They must prove that in an increasingly automated world, as machines get better and more precise, humans still matter.
Dry, self-aware, and optimistic, Humanoid Resources is the bastard child of The Office and Star Trek -- a low budget story in a high budget world.
