E! & WWE to team up for launch of ‘Total Divas’ this Sunday
The WWE Universe will get up-close and personal with the Divas like never before when E! launches a brand-new reality show highlighting the professional and personal lives of WWE’s leading ladies.
Set to debut Sunday at 10/9 CT, “Total Divas” will feature an unprecedentedly in-depth look at what it means to be a WWE Diva in all senses of the word. With complete and utter access to the backstage workings of WWE, the show examines the preparation and fallout from matches, the romantic entanglements of a WWE locker room and, of course, the efforts of prospective new Divas to break through into the ranks.
The show will highlight the lives of five current WWE Divas — Natalya, The Bella Twins and The Funkadactyls — and hit the ground running, following a tag team match between The Bellas and Funkadactyls on the last Raw before WrestleMania 29. The show will follow the lives of WWE's women as they travel around the country, living, loving and competing along the way. Viewers will also be introduced to Eva Marie and Jo-Jo Offerman, two prospective new Divas who have yet to earn their stripes, and will be tested along the way before they’re accepted into WWE’s prestigious women’s corps.
“We are excited to work with E! on the launch of 'Total Divas,' a series that will showcase the professional and personal lives of WWE’s multi-talented female performers,” WWE Executive Vice President of Television Production Kevin Dunn said. “There is no series on the air that can rival the charm, beauty, larger than life personalities, drama and glamour that this show will deliver.”
“Total Divas” represents an unprecedented partnership between E! and WWE, and will surely provide the WWE Universe with a no-holds-barred insight into both the lives of the Divas and WWE’s flagship event, WrestleMania 29.
“I’m thrilled for E! and WWE to join forces and pull back the curtain on one of pop culture’s most fascinating pastimes,” E! President Suzanne Kolb said. “With tens of millions of weekly fans at their disposal, these glamorous, entertaining and tough women prove that behind the glitz of the spotlight, the locker room drama and the jockeying for position within the organization, they are all drawn to one thing: stardom.”
