WWE and Blumhouse are Developing a Vince McMahon Scripted Series





WWE and Blumhouse Television announced today that they are working together on a limited scripted series, The United States of America Vs. Vince McMahon.

According to the announcement, this will be the first-ever scripted dramatic portrayal of a chapter in WWE’s history, as well as the first scripted portrayal of McMahon and WWE superstars of the era.

“We have a dramatic, riveting saga – one that’s crazier than fiction – that will appeal to the cross-section of Blumhouse and WWE fans,” said Chris McCumber, Blumhouse Television President. “To say I’m thrilled about collaborating again with WWE is an understatement.”

The series will focus on the WWE in the 1990s, when Rupert Murdoch purchased the New York Post. Writer Phil Mushnick went after McMahon with headlines like “Legislators Give WWE A Free Pass On ‘Roids” and “McMahon Skips Through the Cemetery” which caught the attention of the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office, leading to McMahon being indicted for allegedly supplying anabolic steroids to WWE talent. McMahon went to trial and was acquitted by the jury, then went on to build a multi-billion-dollar global sports entertainment empire.

“Jason, Chris and their team at Blumhouse create amazing work and we look forward to delivering an inside look into one of the most pivotal moments in our company’s history,” said Kevin Dunn, WWE Executive Producer & Chief of Global Television Distribution.
