More on Wrestlicious
So there's a rumour floating around that the Fox network is interested in the show. I don't think it's too lowbrow for Fox. Fox reality show head Mike Darnell has proven otherwise. But it's not in the best interest of the show to be on the network because they'll be under pressuire to produce ratings and they'll get cancelled if they don't deliver. The likely truth is they took the trailer to NATPE in January. Some Fox stations expressed interest. The problem is in order to get a syndicated show on the air, they have to sell it to 80% of the US markets. Some Fox stations isn't enough. Remember when Stereovision tried to revive WOW a few years ago and they made a big deal about selling the show to Clear Channel stations? Did you hear any more about that? No because they didn't sell it to enough stations to make air. That's the problem facing Wrestlicious. They have some interest from some stations and now they have to shoot a new pilot so they can sell the show to enough stations. They're still claiming they'll make air this fall. Time's a-wasting. Check out the video.
