Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and his family are “thrilled” to announce their new reality TV show about his wrestling career.

Corgan has been the president of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) since 2017. In February, the company announced a streaming deal with The CW. 

In a press release, the show, titled Billy Corgan‘s Adventures In Carnyland, is described as a “brand new unscripted untitled series about Corgan’s life, family, role as President of NWA, and his ‘day job,’”. It will premiere in May.

The press release continued, “When he isn’t churning out albums and touring the world with his legendary band The Smashing Pumpkins, Billy Corgan is also a wrestling promoter who owns the storied National Wrestling Alliance, which he intends to restore to its former glory.

“As if being a rock star navigating the demanding politics of running both a band (Pumpkinworld) and a group of eccentric wrestlers (Carnyland) isn’t tricky enough, Billy is also a father of two AND he’s planning a wedding to his longtime partner, Chloe. Can he possibly keep all these balls in the air? Tune in to Billy Corgan’s Adventures In Carnyland to find out!”

In a statement, Corgan said: “Rebuilding the historic NWA brand has been both an honour and challenge, and this show opens the doors wide so to speak. To reveal the glory and the grit needed to thrive in a winner-take-all sport.

“It’s not always pretty, but I’m proud of what we have accomplished thus far.”

The eight-episode season will premiere on Tuesday, May 14.
