‘The Fight Room’ makes official selection of NYTF

by Phil Wheat


New action series concept, The Fight Room has made the official selection of the prestigious New York Television Festival. Featuring martial arts champion and action actress Zara Phythian (The Hike) and action directed by Christian Howard (Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist), the series is written by Gillian MacGregor and Emily Corcoran, directed by Niall Johnson and executive produced by Graeme Fry for Cork Films Ltd and Stanley Road Productions.

The Fight Room follows a group of female fighters who are kidnapped from all over the world and taken to an unknown location where they are blackmailed into fighting each other for an anonymous internet audience. The narrative blends elements of the classic tournament fight genre with a strong dramatic emphasis as the audience follow the struggles, life and death decisions and unravelling of the mysteries of the female characters.

Currently a 13 minute pilot, which will be screened twice at the NYTVF and has developed an outline for a full television or online series, the trailer for The Fight Room is below:
