Big Show then quickly realizes he is outnumbered, outsmarted and is no longer the center of attention.

Allison Munn, Reylynn Caster, Juliet Donenfeld and Lily Brooks O'Briant also star.

Josh Bycel (Happy Endings, Scrubs) and Jason Berger (Happy Endings, LA to Vegas) are serving as showrunners and executive producers. Susan Levison and Richard Lowell are also executive producers for WWE Studios.

Production on a 10-episode first season will begin in Los Angeles on Aug. 9.

The Big Show Show is Netflix's latest professional wrestling project with WWE. The streaming service is also set to release film The Main Event starring WWE's Kofi Kingston, The Miz and Sheamus along with a biopic on Hulk Hogan with Chris Hemsworth in the lead role.

WWE Studios, which handles Total Divas and Total Bellas on E!, has previously produced HBO's Andre the Giant documentary and feature film Fighting with My Family about the life of WWE star Paige which also starred Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
