Bad Robot Productions (formerly known as only Bad Robot) is an American film and television production company owned by J. J. Abrams. It is responsible for the television series Alias, Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest and Revolution alongside the feature-length films Mission: Impossible III, Cloverfield, Star Trek, Super 8, Star Trek Into Darkness, Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Bad Robot was originally part of Touchstone Television, but was moved by J.J. 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 and What About Brian.


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' children, Henry and Gracie Abrams, saying "Bad robot!" 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[citation needed].

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.Bad Robot released a trailer entitled "Stranger" (otherwise known as S.), it was rumoured to be J.J. Abrams' next film or television project, perhaps even a Lost spin-off, but it was finally explained to be promoting S., J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst's new novel[citation needed].

Bad Robot Productions is currently based in Santa Monica, California.
