ABC PICKS UP REIMAGINED "BATTLEBOTS" SERIES FROM WHALEROCK INDUSTRIES AND ED ROSKI AND GREG MUNSON

ABC has picked up "BattleBots," a reimagined take of the killer robot combat sport from Whalerock Industries and the creators of the original "BattleBots" franchise, Ed Roski and Greg Munson. The homeade robots will battle against each other, in a single elimination tournament style format, until there is one champion. The six episode series is anticipated to air this summer. MGM Television, which has a development deal with Whalerock Industries, will be distributing the program internationally.

The new series promises to wow viewers with next generation robots - bigger, faster and stronger than ever before. The show will have a greater emphasis on the design and build elements of each robot, the bot builder backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship and the spectacle of the event. Separate weight classes will be eliminated so that robots of all sizes will battle against each other. State of the Art Onboard Technology and Cameras will provide audiences with enhanced viewing and combat analytics. There will be cash prizes for winners in the Championship Rounds.

Executive Producers are Lloyd Braun, Chris Cowan, Ed Roski and Greg Munson.
