We’ve all heard Dana White’s story about how he fled from the mean streets of South Boston to Las Vegas after he refused to be extorted by the Irish mob. Well, now it looks like Dana will producing a two-hour television pilot about it…sorta. According to an article in The Hollywood Reporter (via MMAPayout), Spike TV has ordered the pilot, and while it won’t necessarily be his story, it will be a fictional story about the Irish mob in South Boston.
The untitled project, from MGM Television Entertainment, centers on the explosive fallout when a Boston mob boss vacates his position and rival factions face off in a battle to control the streets.
And of course, Dana is determined to push the envelope.
“I know who I’m catering to, and that’s 18- to 34-year-old males who are the ones watching Spike TV. We’re going to push the limits on this show, like ‘Nip/Tuck’ and ‘The Shield’ — violence, sex, bad language. We’re going to see how big Spike’s balls are on this one.”
But, Dana, what about world domination? When will you have time for that?
