A docuseries on ECW is reportedly being shopped around.
Pwinsider is reporting that the potential docuseries based on part of Tod Gordon’s memoir is currently being shopped around to potential broadcast and streaming services. Some of the names in play include Prime Video and Warner Bros. Discovery.
As of this writing, there is no word on how far along the project is and whether it’s simply in the “pitch” stage at this point.
Gordon’s book, Tod is God: The Authorized Story of How I Created Extreme Championship Wrestling, was released in July.
You can check out the official synopsis for the book below:
“In Tod is God — so named for a chant the ECW fans created to honor the founder — Gordon chronicles each step of the company’s meteoric rise to prominence, as well as the elements that led to his removing himself from the company before its demise. Gordon’s former partnership with ECW booker Paul Heyman made for magical TV and in-ring moments. The friendship between Gordon and Heyman, both a blessing and curse, was the once-in-a-lifetime bond responsible for so many of history’s greatest teams, bands, and partners. Gordon has stayed silent on the causes for the split and, by doing so, assumed blame for it. Until now.”
