Fubo on Thursday unveiled the first-ever fall programming slate for Ryan Reynolds’ Maximum Effort Channel, led by The Syd + TP Show, starring the WNBA’s Sydney Colson and Theresa Plaisance.
The Syd + TP Show – which is co-produced by Maximum Effort, Fubo and Togethxr – is set to premiere on Fubo’s Maximum Effort channel on September 18 at 9 p.m. ET.
“Our show is the first of its kind - bringing the WNBA to your homes in a way that’s never been brought before,” said Colson and Plaisance in a statement. “If you have a heartbeat, this is absolutely for you. It’s WNBA players like you’ve never seen before – raw, wild and absolutely outrageous. So many of us are natural born entertainers and multifaceted women so we’re excited for people to be able to witness that.”
“The channel is growing and our fall slate is an example of our long term goal to deliver clever comfort to everyone who needs it,” said Kevin Hill, head of television development at Maximum Effort, also in a statement. “
The Syd + TP Show fits in well with Fubo’s other athlete-driven content, such as No Chill with Gilbert Arenas and Getcha Popcorn Ready with T.O. and Hatch.
Besides The Syd + TP Show, Maximum Effort is also launching original program Discontinued, in which Bruce Campbell takes viewers on a tour of the past, and Flip A Coin. The channel also airs original series Bedtime Stories with Ryan and Podcats: The Pawdcast. In syndication, Maximum carries Betty White’s Off Their Rockers; Reynolds’ early sitcom, Two Girls, a Guy and a Pizza Place; Alf, Fifteen, Kids in the Hall and more.
Maximum Effort Channel, curated by Ryan Reynolds and the Maximum Effort team in partnership with Fubo, is available to watch on Fubo as well as Amazon Freevee, LG Channels, Plex, Sling Freestream, Tubi, VIDAA, Vizio Watchfree Plus and Xumo Play.
