- Variety is reporting that Lucha Underground Executive Producer Mark Burnett, who is the President of MGM TV, is working on a new television series with Women of Wrestling (WOW). The women's promotion was founded by David McLane, who launched the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) in the 1980's, and is owned by Jeanie Buss.
"Barry and I witnessed first-hand the enormous global fan base of professional wrestling with our team's production of 'Lucha Underground,'" Burnett said. "We were looking to expand on our experience doing Lucha, and WOW felt like a natural progression in the space. We love what Jeanie has developed and share in her vision of transforming this entertainment landscape. Together, we will look to elevate the WOW brand through creative production and enhanced character-driven storytelling."
"By challenging the status quo in transforming women's wrestling for the past two years, we feel WOW is now positioned for tremendous growth," said Buss. "We are very excited to have MGM's incredible management team, headed by Chairman and CEO Gary Barber and Mark Burnett, in place to grow our business model."
