With everyone in the UK being told to stay inside amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the World’s Largest Athlete will give us all some much-needed respite with a brand new original series. The Big Show Show – which stars the former world champion as a fictional version of himself – will hit the streaming platform from April 6.
The trailer has finally been unveiled, and we can’t wait to binge the series when it officially launches next month.
The sitcom – a joint venture between Netflix and WWE Studios – sees Show’s teenage daughter moving in with him, his wife and two younger daughters.
The synopsis reads: ‘When the teenage daughter of the Big Show, a retired world-famous WWE superstar, comes to live with him, his wife and two other daughters, he quickly becomes outnumbered and outsmarted. ‘Despite being 7 feet tall and weighing 400 pounds, he is no longer the centre of attention.’

Josh Bycel (Happy Endings, Scrubs, American Dad) and Jason Berger (LA to Vegas, Happy Endings) serve as executive producers and showrunners, while Susan Levison and Richard Lowell take on producer rolls for WWE Studios.
