This week, WWE announced that their WWE Studios division will be expanding into the television and digital platforms.
WWE Studios President Michael Luisi spoke about the plans to transition from a movie division into a full movie, television and digital division in a new Deadline article.
“Our new expanded focus on television and digital continues to push WWE Studios as a multi-platform production company, with the ability to create original content for global distribution as we have successfully done for the big screen,” said Luisi. “We look forward to identifying key partners to work alongside us while creating opportunities to use our on-screen WWE talent in new and exciting ways.”
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon also commented about the plans in the article.
“Given the size of our fan base and their appetite for WWE programming well beyond our core in-ring shows, this is the ideal time to further establish the WWE brand with new genres across platforms,” said McMahon. “WWE Studios is open for business with this new TV and digital initiative.”
