Leading independent distributor DRG and Los Angeles Laker’s executive Jeanie Buss announced today that they have partnered to bring WOW-Women Of Wrestling (“WOW’) to the world. DRG will be selling the original 24 x 60’ series and launching a brand new 26 x 60’ series at MIPCOM 2012.
WOW is designed to play out as an entertaining soap opera featuring an all female cast of athletes who compete as campy villains and inspiring superheroes set against a spicy backdrop of continuing storylines that audiences will love. Chaotic conflicts are settled in front of thousands of fans, taped live in Las Vegas, resulting in real drama being played out in the ring. “Wrestling is the original reality TV - the presentation and drama is outrageous but also family friendly - WOW is a franchise that gives international broadcasters the opportunity to reach a very appealing target audience” says Diane Rankin, SVP Acquisitions at DRG. Several broadcasters are already in discussion to bring WOW to their local audiences and DRG hopes to make these announcements in time for MIPCOM.
Produced by WOW Entertainment, at the helm are Los Angeles Lakers Executive Vice President of Business Operations, Jeanie Buss and wrestling promoter, David McLane. Each WOW broadcast features first rate production values including concert staging and lighting, pyrotechnics, music and video clips for each character all adding to the total WOW Experience. Over 30 WOW Girls compete in the league.
“WOW features strong characters that are highly relatable and fun to watch” commented Jeanie Buss. “WOW resonates with virtually every continent and delivers that loyal viewer every broadcaster is seeking” boasted Jeanie Buss. “With an international cast of WOW Girls like Tel-Aviva, La Nina, and La Femme Fatale, our superhero characters are highly relatable to global audiences.”For media enquiries, please contact:
