Jeff Jarrett closer to TV deal?


jeff_jarretttna founder Jeff Jarrett announced on Tuesday that his Global Force Wrestling company has signed a deal with 25/7 Productions and David Broome, the creator of NBC’s The Biggest Loser to produce GFW TV shows.

The company still doesn’t have a TV deal in place, but this would seem to be a big step in the direction of trying to land one.

“We’re excited to enter this journey with a group as talented as Dave Broome and 25/7,” Jarrett said. “They’ve achieved some great things over the past decade and we feel like they can lend a unique perspective both in and out of the ring.”

An article in the Hollywood Reporter notes that GFW plans to offer year-round TV programming, and that Jarrett and Broome are pitching the company’s TV rights.

“It just won’t be a bunch of wrestling matches; we have exciting announcements to come,” Broome told Hollywood Reporter. “tna or WWE right now is match after match after match. Global Force Wrestling is not going to do that. There will be matches but there will be a lot more and a lot more variety placed into the actual events that will be really innovative and fresh.”
