Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling's 'TNA ReACTION' to Premiere on Spike

NEW YORK, Aug. 3 -- Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling President Dixie Carter and TNA Managing Partner Hulk Hogan today announced the series premiere of "TNA ReACTION," that will air on Thursday nights beginning August 12 at 11:00 pm (ET/PT) on Spike TV.

"TNA ReACTION" will immediately follow TNA's flagship program "TNA iMPACT!," which airs from 9-11PM (ET/PT) every Thursday to create a three-hour bloc, "TNA Thursdays," on Spike TV.

"TNA ReACTION" is a one hour docu-style series that will bring the characters, story, and drama of TNA Wrestling's long running action format "iMPACT!" to life in an entirely new and unique way.

Created and executive produced by Bischoff Hervey Entertainment Television (BHE TV) as part of their partnership with TNA Entertainment announced last fall, TNA ReACTION combines production values and format elements that are truly groundbreaking to the professional wrestling/sports entertainment genre, which has been a leader in cable television for decades.

"My partner Jason Hervey and I have been working with some cutting-edge cameras including the new Canon 7D D-SLR that shoots amazing video in a couple of our reality projects," said Eric Bischoff of BHE TV."

"We experimented with integrating some of these elements into both 'iMPACT' and 'ReACTION.' TNA's director of video production Kevin Sullivan worked closely with us to make this work, and the results are very cool," said Bischoff.

"We are extremely excited that Eric and Jason have been able to bring their experience in reality and docu-drama formats to TNA in a way that would give our shows a different feel. We are very happy with the results," TNA President, Dixie Carter.

TNA's in-house production team partnered with BHE TV to integrate the new production technique into "iMPACT!" and "ReACTION."

"We have definitely hit the refresh button with some of these changes and I think fans will appreciate the pacing, look, and depth they are going to see on 'iMPACT!' and on 'ReACTION,'" said TNA director of video production Kevin Sullivan.
