Netflix and WWE Studios to partner on “The Big Show Show”
Netflix today announced “The Big Show Show,” a half-hour, multi-cam comedy series starring WWE Superstar Big Show. Production on the 10-episode series begins in Los Angeles on Friday, Aug. 9.
Alongside Big Show (Paul Wight), the series stars Allison Munn (“Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn”), Reylynn Caster (“American Housewife”), Juliet Donenfeld (“Pete the Cat”) and Lily Brooks O'Briant (“The Tick”).
According to Netflix, "The Big Show Show" focuses on the following premise: "When the teenage daughter of Big Show, 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."
“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.”
Josh Bycel (“Happy Endings,” “Scrubs,” “American Dad”) and Jason Berger (“Champaign ILL,” “Happy Endings,” “LA to Vegas”) will serve as executive producers and showrunners. Susan Levison and Richard Lowell will also serve as executive producers for WWE Studios.
