NBC has purchased an option on "Slammed", a single camera comedy about working within the world of professional wrestling. Jimmy Fallon is attached as Executive Producer. Jon Rineman, who wrote for Fallon's Late Night, is attached as a writer as well as Executive Producer. The series is very early in the development process.

Over the course of confirming the story on "Slammed", learned that the planned NBC dramatic pilot set in the territory days of professional wrestling will not go forward. Dwayne Johnson was involved in as an Executive Producer and Jerry Bruckheimer's Production company was on board, but the option for the series was not renewed. Since NBC purchased the project as a "put pilot" and guaranteed it would air, the network likely paid some sort of penalty over the course of dropping the project.
