TBS has greenlit its first new unscripted series of 2023, further expanding its All Elite Wrestling (AEW) franchise with AEW: All Access – a docuseries featuring some of the company’s biggest stars. The new series is scheduled to premiere in March.
Billed as “the ultimate behind-the-scenes experience for fans”, the series will feature the likes of Adam Cole, Dr Britt Baker (both pictured), Sammy Guevara, Tay Conti, The Young Bucks, Saraya, Wardlow and Eddie Kingston along with AEW CEO, GM and Head of Creative Tony Khan.
Each episode will showcase AEW’s stars as they navigate the week-to-week challenges, and will track the rivalries between talent as they vie for fans’ attention. Over the course of the series, viewers will get the chance to follow the contentious lead-up to AEW’s major wrestling events and matches. AEW: All Access will complement TBS and TNT’s portfolio of top-rated wrestling content, including AEW: Dynamite and AEW: Rampage respectively.
“AEW has such an amazingly loyal and dedicated fan base that brings in more than 4 million viewers to TBS every Wednesday night,” said Jason Sarlanis, President, Turner Networks, ID, & HLN Linear and Streaming. “With All Access, we are bringing that incredible audience a whole new way to experience the wrestling universe they love. We have a powerful partnership with Tony Khan and AEW. With this new series we are expanding the franchise in a way that invites viewers inside the world of wrestling like never before.”
“We’re always looking for new ways to engage with fans and give them unique access to our incredible talent. With the new AEW: All Access series, they’ll have a chance to peek behind the curtain and into the lives of their favourite wrestlers like never before,” added Khan. “To show the human side of some of these larger-than-life figures will give fans a rare perspective about who these wrestlers are when the cameras aren’t typically on.”
From Warner Bros Unscripted Television, AEW: All Access is produced by Shed Media in association with AEW and Activist Artists Management. Executive producers are Khan, Dan Peirson, Lisa Shannon, Sam Berns, Alan Bloom, Bernie Cahill and Jon Kanak.
