Report: AEW To Produce Behind-The-Scenes Documentary With Warner Bros. Discovery

AEW working more with Warner Bros. Discovery

Relations between All Elite Wrestling and Warner Bros. Discovery appear to still be positive. 

According to Fightful Select, AEW are set to work with Warner Bros. Discovery on a behind-the-scenes documentary that will follow a group of AEW wrestlers. Talent and staff were informed about plans for the documentary in the last week and wrestlers were given the option to not be involved. 

Filming for the documentary will begin on November 2 at Dynamite in Baltimore and continue for six weeks until the AEW show in Garland, Texas on December 14. The documentary series will air in 2023.

Tony Khan will be involved as an executive producer. Executive Producer of Shed Media Sam Berns will be involved too.  

The documentary reveal comes only days after Warner Bros. Discovery US Networks Group Chair and Chief Content Officer Kathleen Finch revealed the network was looking to create more content with AEW

She said: "Brands like TNT and TBS aren't one thing, at least the way that HGTV, ID and TLC are. They are many things - sports, comedy, drama, movies. What they have in common is incredibly loyal, male-skewing audiences. And, by that, I mean 55 percent male - not 85 percent. So what can we create on both of those networks that will keep those men coming back night to night, just the way they do on Discovery or Food Network? How can we push the viewers from Monday to Tuesday to Wednesday to Thursday with a more defined brand lens? We really play in the sports space. One of the things that we're doing around sports is creating shoulder programming to hold onto those fans. AEW [All Elite Wrestling] pulls huge numbers, so we are working with the wrestling team to figure out what new kind of content can we build that’s not in a wrestling ring."
