Deadline reported today that MGM and WWE are teaming up to bring back the classic competition series “American Gladiators.”
Mark Burnett and his team are pitching a reimagined version of the show. As it stands right now, there are no details on what network or streaming service it will air on.
This was a popular competition series that aired in syndication in the early 90s and pitted a regular cast of “Gladiators” against everyday competitors.
The first run for the show lasted from 1989 until 1996 and then was rebooted on NBC in 2008 with Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali as the hosts.
