John Ourand of Sports Business Journal reported today that FS1 is scaling back its production on WWE programming and will not be producing WWE Backstage weekly.
According to a follow up report by PWInsider, FOX held a meeting earlier today to inform the people working on WWE Backstage that the series was done in the current format for now. An older episode is expected to be run in the usual time slot tomorrow.
Those working on the show believe it to be done completely, though there is an outside chance it could be brought back as a special program every now and then.
WWE Backstage is not a WWE production. It is a series produced by FOX, which is currently the home of Friday Night SmackDown.
FS1 is scaling back production on its boxing and WWE shoulder programming. "WWE Backstage will not longer be produced weekly. It is eliminating "Inside PBC." Double digit job losses as a result. SBJ Media will have the full story tonight.
