Netflix July 30 announced the future release of “The Big Show Show,” a half-hour, comedy series starring WWE wrestler The Big Show (Paul Wight). Production on the 10-episode series begins in Los Angeles on Aug. 9.
The series stars 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”).
The series’ premise revolves around Wight, a retired WWE Superstar, whose teenage daughter comes to live with him, his wife and two other daughters. Wight quickly becomes outnumbered and outsmarted by the women, 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 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.”
