The premise follows a group of female fighters who are kidnapped from all over the world and taken to an unknown location where they are blackmailed into fighting each other for an anonymous internet audience. The narrative blends elements of the classic tournament fight genre with a strong dramatic emphasis as the audience follow the struggles, life and death decisions and unravelling of the mysteries of the female characters.
The pilot features Martial Arts champion and action actress Zara Phythian (The Hike) and is action directed by Christian Howard (Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist). The series is written by Gillian MacGregor and Emily Corcoran, directed by Niall Johnson, produced by Emily Corcoran and executive produced by Graeme Fry for Cork Films Ltd and Stanley Road Productions.
The team has produced a 13 minute pilot which was screened twice at the NYTVF and has developed an outline for a full television or online series. The Fight Room is currently in development and already has been presented at Cross Video Days in Paris.
