PREVIOUSLY, July 10: Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman’s shortform video platform Quibi is entering the world of women’s wrestling with Fight Like a Girl, an unscripted series toplined by WWE Superstars, from WWE Studios and Critical Content.
In each episode, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon pairs a WWE star with a young woman struggling with a personal issue that has been holding her back. The wrestlers draw from their own life experiences to help their trainees overcome obstacles and become tougher, stronger and healthier versions of their former selves inside and out. Quibi says each episode of the series shot at WWE’s Performance Center “features a stunning transformation and heart-pounding reveal as the women change their lives forever.”
Fight Like a Girl is produced by WWE Studios and Critical Content for Quibi. Executive Producers are Stephanie McMahon, Susan Levison, Ben Zierten and Richard Lowell for WWE Studios, and Tom Forman, Jenny Daly and Jon Beyer for Critical Content.
