PRESS RELEASE: July 23, 2012
Myrtle Beach, SC – Global Proving Ground (GPG), a new revolutionary platform that enables combat sports athletes to showcase their skills on a global level, announced today that additional casting calls will be held both in the U.S. and abroad for the GPG related reality show project. All experienced fighters with a combat sports background are welcome. The next open casting call will take place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on July 26, at Carolina Forest Martial Arts.
The first open casting call for this exciting reality show project, hosted by the MMA & Sports Expo ‘Show of Strength’ in Atlantic City, exceeded the creator’s expectations. The casting call drew many elite fighters from a variety of martial arts backgrounds. Hollywood producer/director Ben Perry, who has worked with many A-list celebrities including Chuck Norris and Clint Eastwood, filmed each fighter’s official try-out video.
According to James Jefferson, CEO and Co-Founder of Global Proving Ground, “The first open casting call was a great success. We are happy to announce that additional casting calls will be held in various locations around the globe. During the open casting calls elite combat sports athletes will be filmed by experienced producers, ensuring that each fighter’s reality show try out video is of the highest quality.”
During each open casting call, reality show hopefuls will be required to demonstrate their fighting skills and tell the world why fight fans should vote them onto the show. Fan votes will determine the final cast for this very exciting Hollywood TV project!
Jefferson had this to add, “Fighters that can’t make it out to one of our open casting calls will still have a chance to make it on the show. Fighters will have the opportunity to submit a reality show try-out video through Global Proving Ground (GPG), a new revolutionary platform where fighters of all disciplines can showcase their skills to promoters, match-makers, sponsors and producers. Full details on GPG will be announced this week, so stay tuned!”
