John Cena signs development deal with Leftfield Pictures
Deadline has confirmed that WWE Superstar John Cena has signed a deal with Leftfield Pictures. Cena and Leftfield Pitcures – the forces behind FOX's hit show "American Grit" – will extend their previous agreement and continue to develop new, unscripted television and online programs.
“Whether I’m in the ring for WWE or on a TV or film set, I approach all of my work the same way: With focus, authenticity and total commitment," Cena said in a statement acquired by Deadline. “I’m eager to bring that same work ethic to the team at Leftfield, and to create new kinds of programming that can inspire and push people to be their best. I’m living proof of what you can accomplish when that happens.”
Cena will serve as executive producer on the new shows developed as part of the agreement.
