EL REY NETWORK GREENLIGHTS MARTIAL ARTS SERIES "BUSHIDO BATTLEGROUND"

(Beverly Hills, CA, July 27, 2017) - Expanding its slate of adrenaline charged event programming, El Rey Network has greenlit the martial arts series "Bushido Battleground." The new, ten-episode, two-hour series showcasing elite fighters in the full contact sports of MMA, submission Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai matches from around the world, was announced today by El Rey Network President and G.M. Daniel Tibbets.

Part documentary and part travelogue with fights that are 100% real, "Bushido Battleground" is a multifaceted sporting event that feels like a feature film. Matches will be held in locations around the world ranging from Thailand to the Mexico to Los Angeles. But unlike traditional broadcasts, cameras not only cover the action of the fights, but also track the drama before, during and after the bouts. The series is be a uniquely immersive experience, following the fighters and their teams, experiencing their unique training, learning the fighters' different strategies and seeing how those strategies come to life in the action of the ring. Then the lens goes deeper still, staying in the corners between rounds and finally following the aftermath of the contest into the training rooms.

"El Rey Network has found great success with our lucha libre wrestling series 'Lucha Underground' and our weekly Martial Arts film blocks. Like Lucha and the Martial Arts Films, 'Bushido Battleground' will feature great storytelling, compelling fights and incredible skill," remarked Tibbets. "Just as Lucha Underground has taken lucha libre wrestling to another level through Robert Rodriguez's cinematic eye, the fight world will be enhanced by the El Rey Network lens as well."

Executive producers of "Bushido Battleground" are George Chung and Andy Horne. Chung is the CEO and co-founder of JUNGOTV and is a former five-time world martial arts champion and member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame. Horne was co-producer on "Blade" and "Blade II" and developed "La Femme Nikita" and the animated series "Spawn".
