Netflix has announced a brand new series titled The Big Show Show, which features WWE superstar Big Show. The show will be a half-hour, multi-cam comedy series that will run for a 10-episode first season. Per a press release, the series premise is as follows: "When the teenage daughter of The Big Show, a retired world-famous WWE Superstar comes to live with him, his wife and two other daughters, he quickly becomes outnumbered and outsmarted. Despite being 7 feet tall and weighing 400 pounds, he is no longer the center of attention."
In addition to Paul "The Big Show" Wight (Fighting with My Family), the series will also star Allison Munn (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn), Reylynn Caster (American Housewife), Juliet Donenfeld (Pete the Cat) and Lily Brooks O'Briant (The Tick).
The series will be executive produced by Josh Bycel (Happy Endings, Scrubs, American Dad), Jason Berger (Champaign ILL, Happy Endings, LA to Vegas), Susan Levison, and Richard Lowell. Levison and Lowell will also serve as showrunners.
Following the Big news, WWE fans have been taking to social media to express their excitement for the new series.
"Definitely give this a try once it's out," one fan tweeted.
"Big Show is a really talented and funny guy. I remember years ago when he was on SNL when The Rock hosted and how funny he was. Good for him getting his own show. Hope it's good," another fan said.
"Cool for The Big Show. One of my all time favorites!" someone else wrote.
