A television series capitalising on the popularity of robots, fighting and nostalgia.

The success of “Robot Wars” and “Battlebots” shows that people like to watch robots fighting each other. The success of WWE (née WWF) shows that people like to watch people fighting each other.

Following the Hollywood approach to commissioning (“People like explosions. People like pirates. Let’s make a pirate film with lots of explosions! Get me Sigourney… Sigourney won’t do it? Get me Geena Davis. And some coke.”), combine two winning ideas to create Robot-fu.

Robot-fu is a TV series that features those now-retired white-masked robot street dancers that were common in the late 80s and early 90s. Fighting each other. All the while maintaining their slow-motion, one-axis-of-movement-at-a-time style. Shown in time-lapse, for obvious reasons.

       This should be popular. The fights would look very similar to those in 'The Matrix'. There is no fpoon.
