UK’s Breaking Fourth launches VR series Bro Bots

British virtual reality studio Breaking Fourth has launched a new virtual reality (VR) series, Bro Bots, during the Tribeca Film Festival.

The first six-minute episode, entitled Bro Bots Go Sky High, premiered yesterday during the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival as part of Samsung VR Video’s Pilot Season.

Samsung VR Video Pilot Season is a new initiative aimed at infusing exclusive, original, episodic VR content into Samsung VR Video service.

Bro Bots takes place in a futuristic New York City and follows two British police robots, unlikely best friends Otis and Roberto, as they solve crimes for the NYPD.

Three additional episodes of Bro Bots are in production and will be released on the Samsung VR Video service in the coming months.

Bro Bots is created and directed by David Kaskel and Nathan Miller.

“We’re thrilled to be part of Samsung’s VR Video Pilot Season. VR continues to push the boundaries of the way viewers can engage with content and we’re proud to be at the forefront of this medium,” said Kaskel, who is also CEO & founder of Breaking Fourth.

He added: “Consumers today not only want to watch but also engage with content. Bro Bots is an innovative and hilarious VR series that will allow everyone to do just that.”

Bro Bots Go Sky High can be viewed on Breaking Fourth’s Samsung VR channel from 23rd April 2018 onwards.
