FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Hasbro’s Entertainment Studio, eOne, launches TRANSFORMERS: BOTBOTS, the first ever comedy series in the TRANSFORMERS franchise, premiering on March 25, 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 22, 2022) - Hasbro’s entertainment studio, eOne, and Netflix launch TRANSFORMERS: BOTBOTS, the first ever comedy series in the beloved TRANSFORMERS franchise, set to premiere on March 25, 2022 on Netflix with 10, twenty-two minute episodes.
TRANSFORMERS: BOTBOTS is an animated series, full of high energy humor that will delight kids, transporting the next generation of viewers into a brand new world of mischievous little ‘bots. When a mall is hit with Energon, everyday objects from the food court, the hardware store and other locations spring to life and convert into tiny Transformers robots called BotBots.
This series offers a little something for everyone as BotBots come in a wide and unique range of hysterical characters, who are the epitome of… MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. They formed squads based on the store they came from, but not every ‘bot was in their correct store when they came to life. By day, these BotBots hide quietly on mall store shelves but at night, they jump headfirst into adventure until a misfit group of BotBots called ‘The Lost Bots’ run into the mall security guard and put all the ‘bots in danger. Will these zany ‘bots be able to overcome their differences, defeat the security guard and gain acceptance with the other ‘bots? The entire family will enjoy this hilarious new series that is silly, wacky, and fun!
Executive produced by Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt (Spider-Man, Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy, Stretch Armstrong & the Flex Fighters) they also serve as showrunners on the series.
