WWE’s The Big Show is coming to Netflix for a new series called “The Big Show Show.” The series is a half-hour, multi-cam comedy series starring the former WWE Superstar. Netflix confirmed that production on the 10-episode series begins in Los Angeles on August 9th, and the show features Paul Wight, Allison Munn, Reylynn Caster, Juliet Donenfeld, and Lily Brooks O’Briant.
The official logline for the series reads, “When the teenage daughter of The 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 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.
Recent projects from WWE Studios include “Andre the Giant,” an Emmy-nominated documentary in partnership with HBO, as well as hit shows “Total Divas” and “Total Bellas” on E! and “Miz & Mrs.” on USA. WWE Studios also recently produced the feature film “Fighting with My Family” in association with MGM and Seven Bucks Productions, and is currently in production on “The Main Event,” a feature film for Netflix, and “Fight Like a Girl,” an unscripted series for Quibi.
Netflix did not confirm a premiere date at this time.
