Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., company is a powerhouse in the live-content category and is expected to be a good match for the NWWL, which is slated to debut in September.
Howard Mann, the NWWL’s executive producer, told XBiz that his production company picked the industry leader in live video-streaming applications.
“[This is] what we looked for when forming strategic partnerships to increase our revenue base,” Mann said.
Toronto-based NWWL Productions Inc., owner of the branded concept, will feature exclusive content, behind-the-scenes footage and dozens of video feeds of naked wrestling.
The website also will include a members-only VIP area with unique pay-per-minute live video feeds, pay-per-view extreme footage and branded merchandise.
Electra, the former vixen of “Baywatch” and MTV and Playboy fame will be the “temptress” and commissioner of the online pay-per-view program that combines full nudity with World Wrestling Entertainment-style wrestling. “The girls will be real rock-em, sock-em,” NWWL co-owner Jim Tykoliz told XBiz. “We expect to create a cult-classic program.”
The league includes 17 naked female wrestlers, each with a particular storyline.
Each pay-per-view episode, performed in front of a live audience, will include seven matches that are five- to six-minutes long. The feed will be priced at about $25 per pay-per-view.
Electra earlier signed a multi-episode deal with NWWL, with an option for four more events by the summer of 2005.
NWWL is a division of privately held 121 Ventures, which invests in developing media and entertainment projects for release on pay-per-view and television.
In its four years in business CamZ says it has garnered nearly 280,000 members who access its regular content, including voyeur and other live niches.
“We are very confident that the online paying members, the performers, the affiliates, NWWL and CamZ.com are all going to be extremely happy with the outcome,” CamZ’s Robb Cain told XBiz.
