ONE Championship launches film and TV production division
Asian MMA organization ONE Championship announced that it is launching a film and TV production arm called ONE Studios primarily featuring its athletes.
Called ONE Studios, the division will deliver TV and movies distributed across digital platforms such as Netflix, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, as well as its existing partnerships with over 140 global TV broadcasting partners.
“Today I am thrilled to announce the launch of ONE Studios, the movie and TV division of ONE Championship,” ONE CEO Chatri Sityodtong said in a press release. “There are so many amazing and inspiring stories to tell. We will make world-class blockbuster movies and TV shows for the world. We have been working on our first movie project over the last several months, and I will make a huge announcement soon.”
“As the leader of ONE Championship, my job is to serve our athletes by giving them the brightest futures possible,” Sityodtong continued. “There will now be more opportunities than ever for our athletes to achieve the life of their dreams, especially after they retire. Unlike our global competitors who sell fights, ONE Championship is on a mission to unleash real-life superheroes who ignite the world with hope, strength, dreams, and inspiration. We don’t sell fights. We build heroes. ONE Studios will be a major platform for our heroes throughout their careers to spread their messages and inspire the world. My dream is to create the next generation of heroes around the world like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jackie Chan.”
No projects were officially announced, but the first project is expected to be announced “soon.”
