Paul Heyman will star in and co-produce a new television series.
According to a report by The Wrap, Heyman and Mitchell Stuart’s Looking 4 Larry agency and studio has formed a partnership with Roy Bank’s Banca Studio to create unscripted content. Their first project will be a show that will focus on Heyman covering a variety of topics, injecting his famous Heyman energy into the proceedings.
“Against my strenuous objection, Roy Bank has decided our first collaborative project will be centered around me,” Heyman said. “I have come to the educated conclusion Roy has made this decision based on a desire when pitching from the networks that we learn how to deal with rejection.”
The Wrap says Heyman’s new venture doesn’t have anything to do with pro wrestling, but it also doesn’t mean that Heyman is leaving WWE after WrestleMania although “that remains an unrelated possibility.”
Universal Champion Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract expires after WrestleMania, and UFC has publicly shown interest in Lesnar returning to the promotion. The Wrap added that Heyman’s contract is also up after WrestleMania.
