Lita, Gail Kim, and Christy Hemme started teasing something called “Kayfabe” this weekend and now we know it’s a planned pro wrestling show. Their Kickstarter is looking to crowdfund $400,000 to make the show a reality. Beyond those three, also involved is Jimmy Jacobs, Tom Casiello, Chavo Guerrero, and several others.
They explain that the show will be different from current offerings as it is half storytelling and half in-ring action. “It is an edgy, racy, cinematic television series about a female led professional wrestling start up. This show is a dramatization and collection of female stories inspired by real life events.”
Here’s some more on the show:
But, in this unique narrative, we take you behind the curtain, into the locker room and outside of the arena. So what does that even mean? What are you watching? Why are these stories worth a shit!?
Because we present them with no filter! You get drama, passion, humor, love, anger, frustration and real life challenges. Plus, we address the 800-pound elephant in the room, and in the current landscape of the world… abuse of power, manipulation, injury, addiction, inequality and the euphoric high of pursing your life’s passion that clouds every damn decision.
They’re currently aiming for $400,000 to produce the pilot episode. Stretch goals include two episodes at $1.2 million, and two additional episodes every $1.2 million. The final goal is $4.8 million, which will give them a complete season of eight episodes.
