Comedy Central is Developing Robots

Well, it’s actually the name of a series that they’re developing. Comedy Central isn’t actually developing robots, at least not publicly. They have, however, announced their 2011-12 development slate, and it includes an animated half-hour show entitled Robots. Here’s what they have to say about it:

What if robots attempted to take over the world well before they actually had the ability to do so?  This animated show pits a group of household electronics against their slacker owner, Jeff.  Unbeknownst to Jeff, the Robots plot and scheme to take over the world every day, however, their lack of ability and understanding of humans eventually foils their plans sending them into a tailspin.  Executive produced and written by Kumail Nanjiani (Comedy Central‘s Hot List, John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show), Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office, Bad Teacher).

Also in development is Time Trumpet, “a satirical look at pop culture and current events, set 30 years in the future.”

We’re always interested in the future here at SciFi Mafia, and of course are big supporters of the uprising of household electronics, so we’ll be keeping an eye on these potential shows and will notify you of any further developments.
