WWE Studios and production company Thinkfactory Media are partnering together for an adventure reality series starring the Big Show.
It was announced today that WWE Studios and Thinkfactory will produce “Big Show vs. The World: A Giant Abroad.” The show was described as:
Through his extensive world travels with WWE, Big Show has collected a lifetime of unusual stories filled with unexplained natural occurrences, local enigmas and fascinating people. 'Big Show vs. The World: A Giant Abroad' will follow the larger-than-life WWE Superstar as he travels back to these locations and indulges his lifelong passion for exploring the strange and unknown.
Each self-contained episode will feature Big Show venturing to a new exotic area, where he’ll team up with a local guide and dive head-first into a native mystery or legend. Navigating the difficulty of travel (at seven-feet tall) and the extreme, sometimes awkward situations he encounters with his signature self-deprecating sense of humor, Big Show will do whatever it takes to unearth every quirky and shocking detail during his adventures into the bizarre.
“Big Show brings so many different layers to a project like this; it’s a dream scenario for us as producers,” Thinkfactory CEO Adam Reed said. “He blends his fierce intelligence and curiosity with an unexpected, one-of-a-kind wit, and his intimidating physical stature is offset by his surprisingly disarming personality. We’re ecstatic to be working with him and the WWE Studios team and can’t wait for the journeys ahead.”
“I won’t guarantee we’ll solve every mystery, but we’ll explore every strange detail, chase every bizarre lead and meet the incredible characters involved in pursuit of the truth,” Big Show said.
A Thinkfactory spokesperson told The Wrap that the series is “being shopped to major broadcast and cable networks, as well as streaming platforms."
This is the second series involving Big Show that WWE Studios is developing. It was announced in July that WWE Studios is partnering with Netflix for "The Big Show Show," which is a live-action multi-camera comedy series with 10 half-hour episodes.
