Launch announcement of ground-breaking TV entertainment program.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Titan Entertainment Launches New Sporting Event Hybrid With Television Pilot, “Titan Fighting Championship”
Titan Entertainment is breaking ground in the rapidly growing industry of Mixed Martial Arts (“MMA”) with the Titan Fighting Championship (“TFC”) television series which will combine the gritty reality of the MMA events with the theatrical aspect of World Wrestling Entertainment (“WWE”). The first episode of the TFC, The Red Rumble 2007 Fighting Tour, will be shot in Kansas City, Missouri on March 23, 2007. DJ Hurricane of The Beastie Boys will spin tunes for the Red Rumble Extreme After-Party at Harrah’s Voodoo Lounge and adult film star, Brittany Andrews, will be on hand to sign the Women of TFC posters.
While the WWE is known for its pre-staged theatrics, the MMA is popular because professional fighters from different disciplines are pitted against each other without pre-determined outcomes. Titan Entertainment’s TFC series will combine the best of both worlds by surrounding unpredictable professional competitions with a plush VIP section, celebrity appearances and the beautiful Women of TFC.
Titan Entertainment will kick off the Red Rumble 2007 Fighting Tour with a regional model search in association with Entercom Broadcasting in Kansas City and two of it’s radio stations, 610 AM Sports and 98.9 FM The Rock. The Women of TFC contest will be hosted by Harrah’s Voodoo Lounge on March 2, 2007. Brittany Andrews, the honorary “First Woman of TFC,” and the contest winners will participate in the pilot, appear in a promotional Woman of TFC poster and attend the after-party to personalize the posters.
But the March 23rd pilot is just the beginning. Titan Entertainment plans to shoot an additional ten events in 2007 for the Red Rumble Tour. For 2008, they’re developing Battle Of The Titans, an international championship tournament open to all professional fighters regardless of their promoter affiliation. They hope to have world-class competition and grand prize money that will reflect the level of the first Titan World Champion.
“We’re working to create several qualifying tournaments around the globe in locations such as Tokyo, Moscow, Sydney and several places in the United States with the final event taking place in either Las Vegas or Atlantic City,” says Joe Kelly, President of Titan Entertainment. “We’re in the early stages, but were committed to making this a reality and hope to be partnered with a major television network. We’re confident that the grand prize amount could be at a level never before seen at a tournament, which is a sure way to draw gladiators from across the globe,” says Kelly. “Now that would be fun.”
