WRESTLICIOUS TAKEDOWN PREMIERES TONIGHT
New Action/Comedy Series Available on Cable, Online at 11 PM ET
LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2010—Wrestlicious TakeDown, the brainchild of 19 year old Powerball winner Jay Vargas, debuts tonight at 11PM ET on MavTV (http://mavtv.com) in the US and Bite TV (http://www.bite.ca) in Canada. The show will also be streamed live at http://www.bite.ca/wrestling. On March 6, TakeDown will debut on the AmericaOne Network (http://www.americaone.com) at 11:30 PM ET. It will also be syndicated to stations in selected markets including top ten DMA’s Los Angeles, Dallas and Atlanta starting in March.
“We are thrilled about the new series” said Vargas. “Ever since our YouTube promo video surfaced last spring, Wrestlicious has been the buzz around the wrestling world. We’re proud of this show, and think wrestling fans and non-fans alike will really enjoy it”
The premiere episode features a musical performance by the self-proclaimed “Brittany Spears of Wrestling”, Kandi Kisses. The main event will be a wild six ladies tag team bout with Cousin Cassie, Tyler Texas and Charlotte The Southern Belle facing Bandita, Maria Toro and Felony.
Legendary wrestling manager Jimmy Hart will also appear on camera tonight.
Besides Vargas and Hart, who serves as a consulting producer to the series, other personnel includes former GLOW –Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling executives Steve Blance and Johnny Cafarella.
“TakeDown is a fun, sexy action/comedy that doesn’t take itself seriously” Cafarella explained. “However, we do take the wrestling itself seriously. 18, or over one-third, of the PWI Female 50 for 2009 will appear in Season One of TakeDown”
Production on the show continues with tapings in March and April.
