Hey guys. I'm producing a four episode television pilot season right now and was hoping to get your guys' thoughts on some things. The show will be similar in many ways to Fight Factory, but instead of a world famous gym with already famous/successful athletes it will focus on a beginner level gym and fighters pursuing success at the beginning of their careers. I figure with plenty of mma shows already being made about famous fighters and with the influx of, how should I put it... stupid mma shows on the horizon (such as Kitchen Nightmares featuring Randy Couture) I think something a little more down to Earth like this will be nice.
For all of the fighters on MMA Mania, I was hoping you could post in the comments section some of your best and worst memories from when you first started. Or, give me a heads up on some things about becoming a fighter and starting your mma career that us non fighter types might not be privy to. Also, if you are an Atlanta fighter and think that your gym my be interested in being a part of the show, don't be shy. Let me know.
For everyone else, what are some things you'd like to see us to take a look at. Something you don't understand? Something you're sick and tired of other people not understanding? Or just any ideas in general for the show?
MMA Mania will end up getting exclusive tidbits, and the community here will hopefully be able to be involved in some factor. Hope you guys are interested in the idea. If not, leave your ideas anyway, because I wish to exploit them. Thanks a bunch.
