First Look: ABC's BattleBots Poster Has Some Real 'Teeth' To It

ABC’s BattleBots promises to be equal parts Real Steel and… Jurassic Park (?), at least based on the poster for the soon-to-premiere reality competition.

In ABC’s “reimagined take on the killer robot combat sport” — premiering Sunday, June 21 at 9/8c — homemade contraptions will battle each other in a single-elimination tournament-style format, until there is one ‘bot left whirring.

Check out the poster, then read on for more about the summertime series.

BattleBots Poster ABCMolly McGrath (Fox Sports) will host BattleBots‘ metallic melees, veteran sports broadcaster Chris Rose and former UFC fighter Kenny Florian will deliver play-by-play and commentary, Allison Haislip (Attack of the Show) and NASA engineer Bobak Ferdowsi serve as sideline reporters, and Faruq Tauheed is your ring announcer.

Judging each battle will be onetime BattleBots competitor/special effects artist Fon Davis, NASA astronaut Leland Melvin and Nerdist’s Jessica Chobot.

Will you be claiming a ringside seat for the bots’ battles?
