Lita has opened a Kickstarter account to raise $400,000 for a new television show called “Kayfabe.” She plans on producing a one-hour show that is 50/50 drama and wrestling.
Lita promises that the show will present “no filter” so fans will see all the drama, passion, humor, love, anger, frustration and real life challenges. They also plan to address “the current landscape of the world… abuse of power, manipulation, injury, addiction, inequality and the euphoric high of pursing your life’s passion that clouds every damn decision.”
Gail Kim, Amy Dumas, Christy Hemme, Jimmy Jacobs, Chavo Guerrero and others are listed as the creative minds behind this new Kayfabe project. You can find the description below. Find more information here.
You have either stumbled into our world or you are a hard-wired rabid member of the sub-culture that is professional wrestling. As a fan you are the engine that drives the most unique and engrossing form of entertainment on the planet.
Kayfabe is a professional wrestling term derived from carnival lingo that means… to keep secret. Being that we want to keep it REAL, it is the perfect name for our show!
KAYfABE is a one hour professional wrestling show that is 50 percent story and 50 percent in ring action. It is an edgy, racy, cinematic television series about a female led professional wrestling start up. This show is a dramatization and collection of female stories inspired by real life events.
AND YES, this is still at its core, a wrestling show with world-class, in-ring action!
But, in this unique narrative, we take you behind the curtain, into the locker room and outside of the arena. So what does that even mean? What are you watching? Why are these stories worth a shit!?
Because we present them with no filter! You get drama, passion, humor, love, anger, frustration and real life challenges. Plus, we address the 800-pound elephant in the room, and in the current landscape of the world… abuse of power, manipulation, injury, addiction, inequality and the euphoric high of pursing your life’s passion that clouds every damn decision.
So who are “we”?
We are first and foremost storytellers. A collection of wrestling insiders… outsiders… outcasts… enthusiasts and renegades. Comprised of current and former wrestling talent, writers, producers, directors, cinematographers and production talent from the entertainment and professional wrestling industries. A synergistic DREAM team if you will.
At the heart of this team is Gail Kim, Amy Dumas and Christy Hemme…. the first female talent in professional wrestling to move behind the camera as producers, agents and on the creative writing team.
Corey Graves and Renee Young have also thrown in their support. They are very excited to see what they are able to come up with.
