Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair and the former Tag Team Champion Montez Ford are one of the WWE’s many couples. They have been dating for years and married since 2018. It appears that their fans will soon witness their love on a television show.
Hulu is planning to release an exciting new reality series starring two of WWE’s biggest talents. WWE Studios will produce a new series based on Montez Ford and Bianca Belair. The first season will consist of 8 episodes following a husband and wife couple and will premiere on Hulu in 2023. The first season is still in production.
“In 2023, WWE Studios will premiere a new series on Hulu featuring superstars Bianca Belair and Montez Ford,” WWE co-CEO Nick Khan revealed on the company’s earnings call Wednesday. He went on to explain how this show will be presented.
The eight-episode first season is currently in production. We are also pleased to be doing more business with our friends at Disney and Hulu, where we extended our ‘Raw’ re-air rights deal.
WWE Chief Financial Officer Frank A. Riddick III went into further detail on the contract extension. He stated that the company had entered into a brief deal. He stated that, while it would create a financial headwind in the quarter four financials and the 2023 budget, the demands of both parties might be satisfied.
As we previously disclosed, our agreement with Hulu for the ‘Raw’ re-air rights expired at the end of September. In our discussions with Hulu about extending the relationship, we expressed our desire to align the timing of the rights and windows for our content, so as to best position WWE for the upcoming renewal discussions in 2023.
As previously reported, WWE Co-CEO Nick Khan revealed details on three new television projects during this week’s Q3 2022 earnings call. The company is working on them through WWE Studios. WWE’s talent recruiters will travel to Nigeria next week to begin the search for talent for the continent of Africa.
WWE is happy to collaborate with the streaming giant to expand its international footprint with the original series, as per Khan. Let’s see whether the shows catch the interest of viewers. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
