Guess what it's about. I'll give you three guesses. Baseball? Nope. Soccer? Try again. The WNBA? Wrong. Give up? It's Wrestling. No not WWF Wrestling....Regular Wrestling. High School Wrestling actually....
Produced by ESPN Content Development in conjunction with Kelly Ripa’s and Mark Consuelos’ Milojo Productions, in association with critically acclaimed producer John Hock (Through the Fire) and Hock Films, the film will follow the 2007-08 season of the Brandon High School (Tampa, Fla.) wrestling program which sits atop a 451-0 record dating back 34 straight years. Ripa and Consuelos will serve as co-executive producers for the project to be televised October 2008.Aren't these the last people you want associated with your Sport? I've got a hundred dollars that Kelly Ripa doesn't leave her house in the Hamptons once to attend the filming.
Ripa and Consuelos said, “This is the type of story we want to tell. We are extremely happy to be in business with ESPN.” Consuelos went to Bloomingdale High School in Tampa, a rival of Brandon High School, but did attend one semester at Brandon.
