Where sports, pop culture, and media meet
The newly formed Trifecta Entertainment has sold its new syndicated martial-arts series, UFC Wired (based on the popular Ultimate Fighting Championship franchise) to all Fox-owned MyNetworkTV stations with one notable exception – WPWR-TV here in Chicago.
The deal coincides with the upstart network landing the rights to air International Fight League’s Total Impact ultimate fighting series, which airs in primetime on Mondays, beginning next month.
No reason was given on why a deal could not be reached with WPWR. No word on when -or if – the program will cleared on another Chicago station.
