Syfy's newest reality series premiering Tuesday, February 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, ROBOT COMBAT LEAGUE, reinvents gladiatorial combat for the 21st century. The network has just released a first look at the upcoming series - check out the photos below!
Each week, ROBOT COMBAT LEAGUE will feature tournament-style battles between eight-feet tall, state-of-the-art humanoid robots controlled by human "robo-jockeys". Hosting the series is Chris Jericho, the wildly popular WWE wrestler and multifaceted performer.
The robots of the Robot Combat League were designed and created by robotics expert, Mark Setrakian, a leader in the sport of robotic combat. In his distinguished career, Setrakian has developed life-saving robotic systems, and pioneered cutting-edge creature effects, animatronics and control technology for such films as Men In Black, The Grinch and Hellboy. Setrakian combines a keen study of biology with innovative engineering to create robots with uncanny organic movement, earning his reputation as the man who brings machines to life.
Robot Combat League is produced by Smart Dog Media, with Craig Plestis serving as executive producer.
