If you were Arnold Scwarzenegger and you had a bodybuilding drama show that you wanted to make, what would you call it?
Exactly! You'd call it Pump too! LOLz!
Arnold just sold that very show to Showtime — so it sounds like we'll actually get to see it! The show apparently:
'traces the origin of the present-day fitness industry and culture of body worship to a single 1,000-square-foot concrete room on Pacific Avenue: a gym called Pump.'
It'll be an hour-long show set in the early 1970's. Arnold is attached as exec producer, and if it ultimately gets ordered to series, he intends to recur!
We wonder if it'll be any good! We're sure if they can do the drama right and the characters are well played AND written, people will watch anything. We're just not sure if the bodybuilding demo is large enough to give it a chance to even get it to word-of-mouth!
We wish them all the luck, though! Especially if Arnold is back with Maria — he'll need a steady job! LOLz!
