AEW Sets ‘All Access’ Unscripted Series at TBS – Variety

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has set up a new unscripted series at TBS. The announcement was made by AEW CEO, GM and Chief Creative Officer Tony Khan during Wednesday’s episode of “Dynamite.”

The series is called “AEW: All Access” and is set to debut on TBS in March. It will follow some of society’s biggest stars, including Adam Cole, Dr. Britt Baker, Sammy Guevara, Tay Conti, The Young Bucks, Saraya, Wardlow and Eddie Kingston, as well as Khan. Each episode will follow them from week to week as they seek to stay on top of the company while exploring the rivalries between them. The show will also detail the build-up to major AEW events and pay-per-views.

“We’re always looking for new ways to engage with fans and give them unique access to our incredible talent,” Khan said. “With the new ‘AEW: All Access’ series, they will have the chance to peek behind the curtain and into the lives of their favorite wrestlers like never before. Showing the human side of some of these larger-than-life figures will give fans a rare perspective on who these wrestlers are when the cameras aren’t usually on.

“AEW has an incredibly loyal and dedicated fanbase that draws over 4 million viewers to TBS every Wednesday night,” added Jason Sarlanis, President of Turner Networks, ID and HLN, Linear and Streaming. “With ‘All Access’, we’re giving this incredible audience a whole new way to experience the world of wrestling they love. We have a powerful partnership with Tony Khan and AEW. With this new series, we’re expanding the franchise in a way that invites viewers into the world of wrestling like never before.

From Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, “AEW: All Access” is produced by Shed Media in association with AEW and Activist Artists Management. Khan serves as executive producer along with Dan Peirson, Lisa Shannon, Sam Berns, Alan Bloom, Bernie Cahill and Jon Kanak.

“All Access” won’t be the first unscripted AEW series to air on Turner Networks. The “Rhodes to the Top” series with former AEW talent and executives Cody and Brandi Rhodes aired on TNT for one season in 2021. The announcement of the new series also comes as Warner Bros. Discovery has made it clear that the Turner Networks will be focusing more on unscripted content, with virtually all scripted shows and scripted series development having ended on both TBS and TNT.
