William Shatner is the narrator of the new WWE Network series Breaking Ground, which premiered this week.
Breaking Ground “gives viewers a look behind the doors of the WWE Performance Center, chronicles what it takes to become the next WWE Superstar.”
“In a narration of this kind, where it’s me telling you the story, I kind of like to give it my interest in the story,” said Shatner. “So, I had to understand what the story was.
“Now, I begin to see, it’s these individuals we’re locking one to and follow their progression in trying to become a member of the WWE. Well, that’s really curious and interesting.
“Instead of just reading and toning, you’re now part of the story — and that’s what I try to do.”
“We remain committed to developing premium, original content on WWE Network,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE chief revenue and marketing officer. “Breaking Ground will give our fans unprecedented access and a look into what it takes to make it in WWE.”
Breaking Ground airs Mondays on the WWE Network.
