According to a report on Real Screen, Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling has signed a deal with American Ninja Warrior producers A. Smith & Co. Productions to partner and develop a new professional wrestling TV series. It appears that the project will be produced under the Global Force Wrestling banner, but separate from the GFW Amped TV episodes that were taped last year in Las Vegas.
The article notes that this series would take the Global Force Wrestling roster and present them in a similar “event style” to some of A. Smith & Co.’s other productions like Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen. Global Force Wrestling previously stated that they wanted to introduce some reality elements into their product.
Arthur Smith, CEO of A. Smith & Co. Productions, had the following to say about the project…
“Global Force Wrestling is a complete reinvention of the sport that will really resonate with viewers – we’re taking what fans are traditionally used to seeing and flipping it on its head. All sports go through transitions, and wrestling is primed for its next evolution. We’re going to be adding a number of new features and elements that are going to completely change the entertainment level of the sport.”
