Total Nonstop Action Productions will produce a six-parter for Sky’s game show channel Challenge TV called TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp.

The new series follows four aspiring professional British wrestlers who are trying to make it in the competitive world of American impact wrestling. TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp will go behind-the-scenes of TNA Wrestling’s search for a UK star.
 
The hopefuls include Manchester-based female tag-team wrestling twins Hannah and Holly Blossom and two male wrestlers Marty Scurll and Rockstar Spud from Cambridge and Birmingham. Cameras follow them as they travel from their homes in the UK to the USA, get trained and mentored by famous names from the world of UK and US wrestling and meet TNA’s president Dixie Carter.
 
The series culminates with a match at the TNA Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida. At the end of the series the successful candidate(s) will get signed to a contract by TNA and have the chance to appear in front of a home crowd on the TNA World Tour which travels to London’s Wembley Arena in January 2013.
 
Dominic Wilkins, acting director of Challenge TV says: “TNA Wrestling has a huge fanbase in the UK and it’s great to be able to commission exclusive original content which cements Challenge TV as the UK home for TNA Wrestling.”
 
John Jelley, Sky commissioning executive for factual and features adds: “We are confident that this show’s focus on four of Britain’s most promising wrestlers will inspire Challenge’s passionate TNA fans and draw in a new audience to professional wrestling.”
 
TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp marks Sky’s first non-game show commission for Challenge TV since it re-launched on Freeview last year. It aims to complement the TNA Impact series, which is one of the top performing series on the channel, and to enhance the channel’s late night male-skewed audience.
 
Challenge TV is the only UK TV channel  showing games shows from Britain and around the world. It offers cult shows, quiz formats, new game shows and TNA Impact Wrestling action.
