WWE's Biography Series Debuts On April 18, First Trailer Arrives
Stone Cold Steve Austin's episode kicks off the series executive produced by The Last Dance's Jason Hehir.
WWE's new working relationship with A&E will offer up a couple of new series. The first is a documentary series called Biography: WWE Legends, which will tell the tales of some of the company's biggest superstars. The first trailer for the show has arrived a couple months ahead of its April 18 release date.
While WWE has produced many documentaries about its wrestlers in the past, this is the first documentary series with another network. Biography: WWE Legends is an eight-part series in which each episode will document the rise of a WWE wrestler.
The first episode of the series will cover the life of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, and it will be executive produced by Jason Hehir, the director behind The Last Dance, HBO's Andre the Giant, and a number of 30 for 30 specials. This episode will be directed by Jake Rogal, who worked with Hehir as a producer on The Last Dance.
Future episodes of the series will cover Roddy Piper, Randy Savage, Booker T, Shawn Michaels, Ultimate Warrior, Mick Foley, and Bret Hart. "We are thrilled to unveil the stories behind some of the greatest Legends and moments in WWE history," said Stephanie McMahon, WWE CBO. "Together with A&E, we've created an incredible slate of programming steeped in nostalgia that will inspire and entertain audiences worldwide."
WWE's Biography premieres Sunday, April 18 at 8 PM ET / PT. WWE will also be premiering WWE's Most Wanted Treasures right afterward, a reality series about iconic pieces of wrestling memorabilia.
