Fighting with My Family (dir. Stephen Merchant)

Based on a true story, Fighting with My Family is a British comedy meets WWE. Paige is born into a wrestling family. When she and her brother get a chance to try out for WWE (and meet Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) they are thrilled. Of course, there is a catch … only Paige earns a spot.

We’re interested in how the story is translated to screen as well as the real complicated women portrayed.

Host Erroll Southers is joined by Prof Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro and Alex Ago.
