from director and executive producer Greg Whiteley (Cheer, Last Chance U), Wrestlers is a seven episode, raw, dramatic, absurdly funny and deeply empathetic look at a louisville, KY wrestling promotion called Ohio Valley Wrestling. once developmental territory for the WWE, future stars like Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Randy Orton, The Miz, And Dave Bautista passed through its doors. the gym has since hit hard times. Acclaimed wrestler Al Snow clings to an old school wrestling philosophy with a heavy emphasis on storytelling, but in spite of the love of a few diehard fans, the gym struggles week to week to stay relevant enough to keep its doors open. Wrestlers chronicles the efforts Al and his band of aspiring wrestlers make as they struggle with their personal ambitions and each other while they attempt to come together to save this historic gym.
Variety called it a "Slam Dunk," and a "head-spinning blend of reality and fiction" with "a rich ensemble." The New York Times lauded the "very human stories about people just trying to get by... a painstakingly authentic look at an endeavor often derided for being fake." Wrestlers has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 
I edited and co-Produced the first episode. All seven are streaming on NetFlix.
