Global Force Wrestling lands a television deal...sort of

Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling (GFW) sent out a press release this morning announcing their first television deal, with United Kingdom-based Boulder Creek International:

Global Force Wrestling has signed an international TV distribution deal with London-based sales and production house Boulder Creek International (BCI), which will make GFW's "Amped" programs available beginning in November.

BCI has made a name for itself producing such programming as Wild Spirits, Wild Spirits H2O, Wild Surf and Better Than 4 and broadcasts in more than 100 countries worldwide. Amongst its catalogue of documentaries, sports, music, comedy and lifestyle shows; BCI manages the global distribution for a number of events including Frostgun International, Revolution Series Track Cycling, The Go Big Project, Street Velodrome and Cape-to-Cape Australia.

"We are thrilled to continue our international growth and partner with BCI, an industry leader that inherently understands our product, brand vision and ultimately our fans," GFW founder and CEO Jeff Jarrett said. "We look forward to BCI helping us bring a variety of entertainment properties to our fans around the world."

Matt Jeschelnik, managing director of BCI is excited to be associated with the GFW brand.

"I have always wanted to work with Jeff," Jeschelnik said. "I admire his business acumen and his ability to make truly entertaining content. I am delighted that Jeff has chosen BCI to distribute GFW, and I look forward to announcing our broadcast partners."

The next GFW Amped tapings at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas take place on Oct. 23. Championships will be decided in all four divisions - NEX*GEN, Women's, Tag Team and Global (heavyweight). Among those schedule to appear are Nick Aldis, Bobby Roode, Chris Mordetzky, PJ Black, Jigsaw, Reno SCUM, the Bollywood Boyz, Christina Von Eerie and "Bullet Babe"

Reading between the lines of the announcement, and looking at BCI's website, this is a step in getting Amped on screens, but it isn't more than that. Boulder Creek will represent GFW to their contacts in order to get channels to show the content Jarrett produces.

Similar to Dixie Carter and TNA signing with United Talent, BCI will hopefully open doors that it would be hard for Double-J to open on his own, but this doesn't tell us when we'll be able to see PJ Black on our screens once the Impact Wrestling invasion storyline is over.

Stay tuned to find out where and when you'll be able to tune in.
