ProSieben to start Robot Wars

Formats-logo-460_2Robot-Wars-ArenaGerman broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 has bought the reboot of Robot Wars.

The new UK series, in which teams pit their battle robots against one another in a knockout competition, is about to launch on BBC Two in the UK.

ProSieben has snagged the free TV rights for Germany in a deal struck with its distributor, Passion Distribution. The German channel has bought the new six-part British version of the show.

Elin Thomas, director of global sales, Passion, said: “Germany is a key territory for Passion Distribution and Robot Wars’ mix of entertainment, technology and tough competition has all the right ingredients for the German audience and will doubtless appeal across the generations.”

Passion launched Robot Wars internationally at MIPTV.

The series is produced by Mentorn Media, which like Passion, is part of the Tinopolis super indie group.
