“PFL Studios was created to provide MMA fans with powerful and thought provoking original episodic programming that brings the fan closer to the sport,” PFL executive vice president and producer George Greenberg said in a press release. “Inside the Season takes fans along the emotional and physical journeys of our incredible athletes as they fight their way through a challenging regular season, playoffs, and championship format for a $1 million title. Collaborating with a talent like John C. McGinley is indicative of the high-quality level of work we’re looking to achieve at PFL Studios and the crossover appeal of MMA.”
“As a fan of the Professional Fighters League, it’s a privilege to help bring to life the 2019 PFL season through rich and impactful storytelling,” added McGinley. “I’ve always been fascinated by the dedication MMA fighters have to their craft and it’s even more impressive when you are competing in PFL’s season format. PFL Studios is bringing a much-needed fresh perspective to the sport, and fans will appreciate the in-depth look into each fighters’ journey.”
