Robot fighting series to be hosted by WWE's Chris Jericho
By Tim Baysinger -- Broadcasting & Cable, 11/26/2012 2:05:34 PM
The series, which premieres Feb. 26 at 10 p.m., will feature tournament-style fights between eight-foot tall robots, controlled by human "robo-jockeys."
Robot Combat League features 12 teams consisting of a fighter (a "robo-jockey") and a robotics engineer (a "robo-tech"). Each team is paired with its own unique robot and will fight in a first-of-its kind competition using a high-tech exo-suit that translates their movements to their machine. The robots featured in the show were all designed by robotics expert Mark Setrakian, who has created animatronics and control technology for films Men in Black, The Grinch and Hellboy.
Popular WWE wrestler Chris Jericho will host the show.
Robot Combat League is produced by Smart Dog Media, with Craig Plestis serving as executive producer.
Chris Jericho meets robots! Cant go wrong there! I will for sure be watching this show. Good call syfy!
