ITV Grapples with World of Sports Wrestling

ITV Grapples with World of Sports Wrestling

ITV Studios Global Entertainment is working with World of Sport Wrestling in licensing following the return of the British wrestling company’s Saturday night show on ITV this July.

The 2018 revamp of the 1960s program features more than 30 wrestlers, all with their own catchphrases and signature moves. The series showcases fan-favorites Grado, Will Ospreay, Viper, Adam Maxted, Kay Lee Ray and more.

In addition, legendary wrestler Stu Bennett stars as WOS Executive, and wrestling expert SoCal Val joins the show as a member of the commentary team.

Season one of “World of Sports Wrestling,” produced by ITV Studios Entertainment, debuted to more than 1 million viewers in the U.K., making it the highest-rated British wrestling show in 30 years.

A live show is planned for the beginning of 2019.

ITV will exhibit at Brand Licensing Europe at stand E20.
