NOT ALL ROBOTS is a black comedy set in a near future dystopia, like a darker Futurama or a funnier Black Mirror.

In the year 2056, robots have re­placed human beings in the work­force. An uneasy co-existence develops between the newly intel­ligent robots and the ten billion hu­mans living on Earth. Every human family is assigned a robot upon whom they are completely reliant. What could possibly go wrong? Meet the Walters, a human family whose robot, Razorball, ominous­ly spends his free time in the ga­rage working on machines which they're pretty sure are designed to kill them in this sci-fi satire from Mark Russell (The Flintstones, Second Coming) and Mike Deoda­to Jr. (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Resistance).
