Automata: A classic noir tale, with robots

In the prohibition era past of an alternate universe, robots are an oppressed minority. Building new robots is forbidden and the ones that remain are treated as second class citizens. It is in this world that private dick Sam Regal (Basil Harris of Grimm) works with his robot partner Carl Swangee (Doug Jones of Hellboy, Star Trek: Discovery) ply their trade.

The pair are hired to investigate a rich man's wife which inevitably leads to murder, sex, intrigue, and men in fedoras punching one another (as men in fedoras tend to do). To date the first 5 episodes have been released to Kickstarter patrons, there is no word on when everyone else will get to see them.
