MGM bringing ABC’s Battlebots to market

MGM will sell Battlebots internationally, the robot battle series that is relaunching on US broadcast net ABC.

US producer Whalerock Industries and the creators of the original BattleBots franchise, Ed Roski and Greg Munson, are making the new series.

US studio MGM has a development deal with Whalerock and will bring the show to the international market.

The six-episode series, in which homemade robots battle one another, will go out on ABC this summer.

The original BattleBots ran for almost 100 episodes, over five seasons, on US cable net Comedy Central.
