WWE announced Thursday a new family series starring Mick Foley and his family titled “Holy Foley.”
The 10-episode series is scheduled to premiere in August on WWE Network.
Foley is the centerpiece of the “behind-the-scenes look into the Foley family life,” with secondary focus on his daughter Noelle trying to get into the wrestling business. Also of interest is his oldest son Dewey pursuing a writing job for WWE.
WWE is describing the show as a “laugh-out-loud” half-hour family drama focused on Foley’s most prominent children dragging him back into the wrestling business “just when Mick thought he was out of the ring.”
“I am excited to give fans a behind-the-scenes look into the Foley family life,” said Mick Foley in a press release. “Holy Foley will be filled with surprises, lots of drama and moments that will make you laugh out loud.”
The show is a collaboration of Lionsgate TV, Trooper Entertainment, and executive producer Dave Caplan.
“As a leader in supplying premium content to digital platforms, we are very pleased to once again partner with WWE and bring this fun family series to WWE Network,”said Lionsgate programming executive Jennifer O’Connell. “Holy Foley is an exciting way to give the WWE Universe a unique behind-the-scenes look into the Foley family.”
