DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, February 2018) The epic robot-fighting series BattleBots is making its triumphant return with all-new episodes set to premiere this spring on Discovery Channel and Science Channel. BattleBots features the biggest, baddest, strongest, and fastest next-generation robots from all over the world as they duke it out for supremacy in the rapidly exploding world of Robot Combat Sports. The metal munching mayhem is back, from the bots to the builders, the flames, the spark and all the robot guts and glory. Each match consists of two robots competing in a single, three-minute bout in which the goal is to destroy or disable their opponent. If there is no knockout during the battle, a panel of judges will declare a victor. "BattleBots is the perfect union between cutting-edge science and entertainment," said Marc Etkind, General Manager Science Channel. "Having heard the call from robot fans clamoring for more action, we are thrilled to bring back this iconic series." "In BattleBots, anyone can be the champ, and all are welcome to apply," said Ed Roski, BattleBots Co-founder. "This is a sport for smart people where it's all about ideas and building something cool. BattleBots is a fight to the death, but no one gets hurt. It's the place to show-off your imagination, your engineering prowess and art, and your ability to make it survive - and we couldn't be happier bringing BattleBots to Discovery." He added: "In my opinion, Discovery is the TV network where BattleBots has always belonged." BattleBots highlights the design and build of each robot, bot builder backstories, and their pursuit of the BattleBots championship. Homemade robots built on a myriad of platforms and featuring a huge variety of deadly weapons go head-to-head, all captured by state-of-the-art onboard technology and cameras to enhance viewing and provide combat analytics.
