Q&A with Van Alan
Set in an alternate Prohibition-era America, this live action science-fiction noir series based on characters from the popular web-comic created by Penny Arcade invites you in to experience a world unlike anything you have seen. In this fictional 1930s-set tale, it is not liquor that is outlawed but instead the continued production of highly sentient robots known as automatons. They live among us as an underclass of social outcasts, victims of human prejudice and strict laws that govern their existence. Automata follows New York private detective Sam Regal and his automaton partner Carl Swangee as they work together to solve crimes and understand each other in this dystopian America.
