Earlier today, Netflix announced The Big Show Show, a half-hour, multi-cam comedy series starring WWE Superstar The Big Show. Production on the 10-episode series begins in Los Angeles, California on August 9.
The Big Show Show is Netflix’s latest project with WWE Studios, following the recent announcement of the family film The Main Event.
The comedy series joins a growing slate of live-action series featuring kids and teens and made for families, which includes Family Reunion, Malibu Rescue, No Good Nick, Alexa & Katie and the upcoming series The Letter for the King and The Baby-Sitters Club.
The series will star WWE Superstar The Big Show a.k.a. Paul Wight (Fighting with My Family, WWE), Allison Munn (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn), Reylynn Caster (American Housewife), Juliet Donenfeld (Pete the Cat) and Lily Brooks O'Briant (The Tick).
Josh Bycel (Happy Endings, Scrubs, American Dad) and Jason Berger (Champaign ILL, Happy Endings, LA to Vegas) will serve as the series' executive producers and showrunners. Susan Levison and Richard Lowell will also serve as executive producers for WWE Studios.
With respect to what the show will be about, when the teenage daughter of The Big Show -- billing in as "a retired world-famous WWE Superstar" -- comes to live with him, his wife and two other daughters, he quickly becomes outnumbered and outsmarted. Despite being 7-feet tall and weighing 400 pounds, he is no longer the center of attention.
WWE Studios is WWE’s multi-platform content division that develops and produces scripted and non-scripted series, documentaries and feature films.
Recent projects include Andre The Giant (an Emmy-nominated documentary in partnership with HBO), Total Divas and Total Bellas on E! and Miz & Mrs. on USA.
WWE Studios also recently produced the feature film Fighting With My Family in association with MGM and The Rock's production company Seven Bucks Productions, and is currently in production on The Main Event, a feature film for Netflix, and Fight Like a Girl, an unscripted series for Quibi.Published 30 Jul 2019, 23:15 IST
