Netflix and WWE are teaming up for The Big Show Show, a half-hour, multi-cam comedy series starring WWE star The Big Show.
The Big Show aka. Paul Wight (Fighting with My Family, WWE) will play a version of himself in the comedy, which sees the teenage daughter of The Big Show, a retired world-famous WWE Superstar comes to live with him, his wife and two other daughters. Despite being 7 feet tall and weighing 400 pounds, he is no longer the center of attention and is quickly outnumbered and outsmarted.
Production on the 10-episode series begins in Los Angeles on August 9.
Wight is joined by Allison Munn (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn), Reylynn Caster (American Housewife), Juliet Donenfeld (Pete the Cat) and Lily Brooks O’Briant (The Tick).
The 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 Executive Producers include Josh Bycel (Happy Endings, Scrubs, American Dad) and Jason Berger (Champaign ILL, Happy Endings, LA to Vegas), plus Susan Levison and Richard Lowell for WWE Studios. Bycel and Berger will serve as showrunners.
