Prior seasons of WOW will be available on the CW Seed and Pluto TV platforms in December, with new episodes debuting in weekend syndication in the fall of 2022.
The distribution arm of ViacomCBS has already received clearance in 160 markets.WOW was founded in 2000 by David McLane, who was also responsible for the women’s wrestling promotion GLOW, which inspired a Netflix series. Jeanie Buss, the controlling owner and president of the Los Angeles Lakers, now owns the organisation. “The presentation of women in wrestling has long been very important to me, and we now present the epitome in sports entertainment that will highlight the athleticism of these superstars as we reintroduce WOW,” Buss said in a statement.
“Our collaboration with the entire ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group family enables us to continue our mission of providing wrestling fans and WOW Superheroes with what they all deserve: a global platform for a dedicated women’s wrestling league.” “We are thrilled to collaborate with Jeanie Buss and David McLane to establish a significant global footprint for WOW and to expand our diverse, world-class content portfolio,” said Dan Cohen, president of ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.
“This series provides audiences with one-of-a-kind, compelling, and creative entertainment that features female superheroes in the ring, behind the cameras, and in every aspect of the business.” We believe that this is an event program that will make some noise in the marketplace, both in the United States and abroad.”AJ Mendez, the author of Crazy Is My Superpower and a former WWE champion, will provide commentary during each broadcast as well as serve as executive producer alongside Buss.
