Box Synopsis:
           "In the year 2072, the world has become a barbaric, computerized wasteland. Waging a ruthless war for the minds of the masses, two huge, global TV networks create increasingly bizarre and violent programming - culminating in the ultimate prime time death-sport: 'The Battle of the Condemned'! In this media spectacular, convicted murderers are given the chance to escape their death sentences - by entering into a high-tech fight to the finish in front of the cameras! But, unknown to the TV execs, their super-intelligent network computer has devised a program of its own - a program aimed at subjugating all of humanity!
           Led by the resourceful Drake (JARED MARTIN of Westworld and TV's Dallas) and a towering black warrior (FRED WILLIAMSON of M*A*S*H), a band of futuristic gladiators plunges into a desperate struggle to survive the televised bloodbath and defeat the omnipotent computer!"
