Rooted in the tradition of mecha anime, gen:LOCK is set in a dystopian future where conflict is settled by battles using giant weaponised robotic armour. Earth’s last free society is on the losing side of a global war, and recruits a diverse team of young pilots to control the next generation of mecha. David Tennant's character Doc is the leader of the Experimental Science Unit and the inventor of the 'gen:LOCK' technology. The cast includes Michael B. Jordan, voicing main character Julian Chase, along with Dakota Fanning as mech pilot Miranda Worth, Monica Rial and Kōichi Yamadera as new recruit Kazu Iida. gen:LOCK is co-produced by Jordan through his own company Outlier Society Productions.
gen:LOCK will premiere in January 2019 exclusively on Rooster Teeth's online subscription network FIRST via www.roosterteeth.com. FIRST is available on a free 30 day trial but then costs $4.99 per month.
