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.
