Billy Corgan’s Wrestling Career May Become a Reality Show
AMC is on board to develop the series (seriously)
Billy Corgan is a busy dude these days. Like, really busy. He recently performed an eight-hour synth-jam and just announced that he’s working on not one, but two Smashing Pumpkins records for next year. And there’s also his wrestling league, Resistance Pro. Variety reports that AMC, home to such classic programming as Mad Men and Breaking Bad, is developing an unscripted reality show about Corgan’s league.
At the risk of stating the very obvious: this will be awesome (and much better than developing a show about his tea shop). Details are scarce, but the Variety article describes the unscripted “Untitled Billy Corgan Wrestling Project” series as “pulling back the curtains on the pro-wrestling world as he takes over creative direction for the independent wrestling company Resistance Pro.”
In related Pumpkins/TV news, former guitarist James Iha penned the score to a new sci-fi series on Hulu called Deadbeat, which premieres on April 9.
