History

Bad Robot was originally based at Touchstone Television, but was moved by

Abrams to Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Television, after his contract with

ABC expired in 2006. Bad Robot produced Lost in association with ABC Studios,

formerly Touchstone Television. The two companies jointly produced Six Degrees

Abrams is Chairman & Co-Chief Executive Officer of Bad Robot, and Katie

McGrath serves as the Company's Co-Chief Executive Officer. In June 2017, Bad

Robot announced that Brian Weinstein would become President and Chief Operating

Officer, overseeing daily operations and spearhead the company’s growth strategy in its existing businesses, while developing new

areas of expansion across the entire Bad Robot platform and pursuing alternative financing options. [1] In May 2015, Ben Stephenson

left the BBC where he had been head of drama to helm Bad Robot Television. Lindsey Weber leads Bad Robot's feature film

division.

The production logo has appeared since 2001, featuring a red rectangular headed robot running through a meadow silhouetted until it

appears suddenly in front of the camera, followed by voices provided by two of Abrams's children, Henry and Gracie Abrams, saying

"Bad robot!" [2] Although some fans believe that the name comes from a line in the animated film The Iron Giant, Abrams told

Entertainment Weekly that it simply came to him during a writers' meeting.

In February 2013, it was announced that Bad Robot would be partnering with the Valve Corporation to produce possibly a Half-Life

or Portal film in the distant future. [3] In August 2015, Valve released a new beta game mode to Team Fortress 2, PASS Time, which

Bad Robot worked on. [4] On July 7, 2016 the PASS Time game mode became official. [5] Bad Robot released a trailer entitled

"Stranger" (otherwise known as S.), rumoured to be Abrams' next film or television project, perhaps even a Lost spin-off, but it was

finally explained to be promoting S., Abrams and Doug Dorst's new novel, as a new trailer for S. was released. In February 2017, it

Ray. [6]

Bad Robot Productions is currently based in Santa Monica, California, [7] in a building which is incorrectly labeled on purpose as the

home of the fictional "National Typewriter Company" because Abrams "likes typewriters — and misdirection." [8]
