On the latest episode of “Bare With Us,” Corey Graves and Carmella announced they have an upcoming series on the WWE YouTube channel called “Corey and Carmella.”
“We have a reality show coming out. We’re doing this through WWE and it’s going to be ‘Corey and Carmella’,” Carmella revealed.
Corey followed up with, “It is in conjunction with WWE, full story, full disclosure as we like to do here on the show. This has been a project that has been in the works since the infancy of this podcast. It happened right away. We got contacted by our good friends now at a company called Glass Entertainment.”
“They contacted my publicist,” Carmella said. “They saw our podcast. I don’t even know where they saw it. They saw a video that we had posted on our Instagram or something. They contacted my publicist. My publicist contacted me. They didn’t even realize that we were in WWE. They had no idea, they say. I don’t know if that’s true. We brought this to WWE. We said, ‘We have this opportunity. What do you think?’ Of course, with time, it just takes time to figure out how we are going to go about it and how they are going to be involved, a lot of negotiation and business and stuff.”
“We wanted to be as authentic as possible. I don’t think they call them reality shows anymore. It’s unscripted entertainment,” Graves said.
“We shot a pilot episode. They took the pilot and chopped it up into 10, 4-minute episodes. It’s not going to be something you see on a network. It’s going to be on WWE’s YouTube,” Carmella shared.
Graves closed with, “It’s going to drop on February 28th. I believe the entire series will be dropped. That’s subject to change. WWE has been unbelievable about helping us maintain our authenticity as much as we can. It’s called, ‘Corey and Carmella’, but for those of you who listen to this, you’re going to recognize more Matt and Leah than what you see on Raw, SmackDown, or anything WWE. It’s awesome to have the machine working with us to help us achieve this goal considering this all began during the pandemic on Instagram Live because Leah and I were bored.”
