BIG NEWS: Our @sevenbucksprod along with our producing partner Beau Flynn’s @flynnpictureco sell a script titled “MUSCLE BEACH” to USA Network! Written by Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer. An original hour long drama series who’s found the perfect home at USA – a network who’s been on fire with their brilliant dramatic television. “Muscle Beach” is set in a legendary bodybuilding gym in 1980’s Venice Beach where a colorful tribe of lost souls struggle to reinvent themselves by bench-pressing their way to a bigger, better American dream, no matter what the cost. As the series explores the body obsessed fitness movement that took the nation by storm during the supersized Reagan 80’s, the excess of the era and the many temptations of Los Angeles will expose the dark side of chasing dreams. As a kid growing up in the 80’s it’s exciting to produce a series that stays true to our brand and dig deep into an iconic time in bodybuilding and unique Venice Beach culture – the 80’s. The 80’s was a crazy time in Venice Beach with many lost souls. A very crazy time… #SevenBucksProds #FlynnPictures #USANetwork #OriginalDramaSeries #MuscleBeach
– It is also being reported that Kota Ibushi, Cedric Alexander, Gran Metalik, and Akira Tozawa have all been offered contracts, and that they all are probable to sign.
– Dave Meltzer mentioned that the reason Heyman’s name was not mentioned on air is because his WWE contract has expired, and both the parties haven’t reached an agreement yet to renew his contract. While both the sides can resolve their issues, nothing is certain at this point, which is why WWE decided not to bring him up when Brock Lesnar was drafted to RAW.
