An upcoming WWE series on Hulu will star Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair and her husband, WWE Superstar Montez Ford. In 2017, they announced their engagement, and they wed the following year, in 2018.
WWE Co-CEO Nick Khan confirmed the series’ announcement during the third quarter earnings call of 2022. Hulu intends to launch a new reality series starring two of WWE’s most prominent figures. A new television show based on Bianca Belair and Montez Ford will be created by WWE Studios. The eight-episode first season will debut on Hulu in 2023. First-season production is still ongoing.
“In 2023, WWE Studios will premiere a new series on Hulu featuring superstars Bianca Belair and Montez Ford,” WWE co-CEO Nick Khan revealed on the company’s earnings call Wednesday. “The eight-episode first season is currently in production. We are also pleased to be doing more business with our friends at Disney and Hulu, where we extended our ‘Raw’ re-air rights deal.”
The announcement did not include the show’s premiere date or any additional information.
WWE and Hulu extended WWE Raw re-air rights, Khan added.
“As we previously disclosed, our agreement with Hulu for the ‘Raw’ re-air rights expired at the end of September. In our discussions with Hulu about extending the relationship, we expressed our desire to align the timing of the rights and windows for our content, so as to best position WWE for the upcoming renewal discussions in 2023.”
Since 2012, “Raw,” “SmackDown,” “NXT,” “NXT: Level Up,” and “Main Event” have been rebroadcast on Hulu via a partnership between WWE and the streaming service. In addition, episodes of “205 Live,” “Slam City,” “Superstars,” “Miz & Mrs.,” “Total Divas,” and “Total Bellas” are available.
