Classic “Robot Wars” Game Show Rebooted

BBC Two has commissioned a reboot of the famous Jeremy Clarkson-led 1998 game show “Robot Wars”.

LucasToys designer Marc Thorpe created the series in which amateur roboteers pit their creations against one another in an arena battle. The UK update follows in the wake of U.S. network ABC scoring success this past summer with the similar “BattleBots”.

Mentorn Scotland will produce six episodes of the reboot which boasts “more robots, more battles and more science than ever before” along with more innovative fighting machines who will duke it out in front of a live audience in Glasgow.
