Billy Corgan Gets Greenlit On Behind-The-Scenes Wrestling Show

Those who don’t know Billy Corgan as the creative force behind The Smashing Pumpkins might recognize him as the Highland Park entrepreneur behind the 1930s-style teahouse Madame ZuZu’s. But it’s his third career that will bring him to television. Corgan is creative director of theChicago-based Resistance Pro wrestling league, and AMC has just given him an eight-part series that lifts the curtain on the popular attraction, showing the creation of wrestling storylines, choreography and behind-the-scenes arguments. The title and airdate of the reality show is not yet announced, but in the meantime, Corgan makes his Ravinia debut in an acoustic evening with Katie Cole on Aug. 30.
