Robots Test Syfy Reality Mettle

Robot Combat League, US cable network Syfy’s new reality series, will debut February 26 with eight foot tall robots climbing into the ring with humans to test their mettle.

The series will offer tournament style battles with 12 teams made up of a robo-jockey or fighter and a robotics engineer, paired with their own giant robot.  The robots are the brainchild of Mark Setrakian (Men In Black/The Grinch).

WWE wrestler Chris Jericho will host the series which has players wearing suits that translate their moves to the giant robot. Each fight will be three rounds with the winners moving up to the next level.
