Escapade Media has sold Australian factual reality series Wimp 2 Warrior to the RTL CBS Asia Entertainment Network.

Created by Showrunner Productions and Richie Cranny, the show follows 40 everyday people as they battle it out over 20 weeks to become a warrior at fight night. 

The series, which will premiere on RTL CBS's male-skewed channel Extreme later this year, features ex-UFC world champion Jens Pulver as a coach and mentor. The final fight night is filmed live at Luna Park.

Escapade Media’s Hamish Lewis said: “Wimp 2 Warrior is an amazing format that is capitalizing on the mass global appeal of MMA and incorporates elements of all the inspiring health and fitness series we have grown to love.”

There is no Australian broadcast deal yet.
