Michael Gambon voices rebel robot



Sir Michael Gambon has been confirmed as the voice of the eponymous vengeful robot in E4’s six-part hidden camera show, Bad Robots.

Created by BAFTA-winning producer Nathan Eastwood, the series uses new technology to create computer-generated pranks.

A host of demonic robots, from Fictional company Tezcorp Industries cause the likes of argumentative vending machines to patently biased pub quiz machines, abusive electronic road signs to a spray tan booth that loves to spray you (but not the colour you want…) are all intent on giving their human users a really hard time.

The first episode in the series will see student union member Barney lose his cool when posting a fragile wedding package; a member of the public being offered the opportunity to get a dodgy passport photo printed on a shower curtain, and unfortunate drivers battling with an automated parking ticket machine – all with side-splitting consequences.

The comedy is produced by Objective Productions, part of the All3 Media Group.

Bad Robots is due to air on E4 in early November
