Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is reportedly developing a new reality television show based on his newly formed pro wrestling company. The rocker, a long-time wrestling fanatic, revealed plans for the show during an interview with ProWrestling.net.
"We believe that wrestling is fascinating on many, many levels. Socially, politically, even economically. The struggles independent wrestlers go through to try to find work. Those are real struggles that anybody can identify with. We want to show what goes on in a wrestling company behind the scenes," he explained.
According to Corgan, the show will be produced by a "big reality show producer" but won't be manufactured:
"I've had like nine or ten meetings so far about it. With different people. A lot of them wanted to know if this would be your typical manufactured reality show and I told them that with a wrestling company, you don't have to manufacture reality. There's plenty of it to go around," said the singer.
Oceania, a 13-song EP from the Pumpkins, is due later this month.
