When the executive producer of your new reality show has nearly 57 million likes on Facebook, it’s a solid idea to use that platform to help launch said series. Fuse said today that EP Dwayne Johnson will host the Clash of the Corps premiere at 7 PM PT October 4 on his Facebook page, one day ahead of its bow on the cable net.
The eight-part, 30-minute docuseries chronicles the blood, sweat and tears behind the scenes and on the road in the fast, ultra-competitive, high-energy world of Drum Corps International, known as “Marching Music’s Major League.” Clash of the Corps follows DCI’s two most historically successful corps, the Cadets from Pennsylvania and the Blue Devils from Northern California, who have been battling it out for the World Championship title or the past 20 years.
Clash of the Corps is executive produced by Seven Bucks Productions’ Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Brian Gewirtz along with 44 Blue Productions’ Rasha Drachkovitch. Its first two episodes premiere October 5 on Fuse, starting at 11 PM.
