Seth Rogen wants another revival of American Gladiators
"When you love something, you just want more of it," Rogen tweeted of his and producing partner Evan Goldberg's plan to bring back the 1990s physical competition show with the help of MGM Television. American Gladiators aired in syndication from 1989 to 1997 and was revived for NBC for two seasons, both airing in 2008, with hosts Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali. As Deadline notes, "the American Gladiators series was considered a syndication darling, repeatedly racking up ratings for its time slot and was so successful that other programs ended up spinning off from it to try to cash in on that momentum. We hear that MGM is currently talking to distributors who are interested in the revival."
