CUBICLE TO THE CAGE documentary TV series holds open auditions (Halifax)

Mixed martial arts documentary TV series holds public auditions November 20, 2011

(Halifax, NS) – Hemmings House Pictures holds its second round of public auditions Sunday, November 20, 2011 for an up-coming documentary TV series called “Cubicle to the Cage.” The series–to air nationally on HD network radX in 2013–will be shot entirely in the Maritimes. It follows everyday men and women on a life-changing journey to become professional mixed martial artists (MMA).

“It’s bound to be an exciting, sometimes impossible, adventure for these folks. They won’t know what’s hit them when they come up against me,” says Peter Martel, lead trainer for “Cubicle to the Cage” and owner of TitansMMA + Boxing. “When they fall down, I’ll make them get up. Bleeding, bones broken. It doesn’t matter. This will be the hardest, but most rewarding thing they’ve ever done. And when it’s over–when they’re standing in the cage to fight their first professional fight–it’ll be a good day.”

Martel hopes the series will fatten up the talent pool for MMA in the region, while raising the profile for the sport in general. “We’re giving opportunities to Maritimers,” he says of the series, which provides free training and access to equipment for a whole year.

Fit or unfit; stay-at-home parents or regular nine-to-fivers; entrepreneurial-types or red-eyed students. All are welcome to audition, provided they haven’t been in a professional fight to date. Select trainees will be thrust kicking, screaming and bleeding into the grueling and often dangerous world of a professional mixed martial artist.

Camera crews will track the day-to-day of the cast, as they realign their priorities and redefine their relationships in favour of becoming a professional athlete. Long gone are late mornings in bed, lazy coffee breaks and fast food. Focus will shift to an exacting nutrition program and rigorous training in wrestling, boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Muay Thai.

At the end of the 12-month program, trainees will step into a cage for their first professional fight before a televised audience. This event marks the culmination of a year of physical, emotional and spiritual sacrifice.

Auditions are scheduled for November 20, 2011 at TitansMMA + Boxing (3200 Kempt Rd.). Registration and interviews are from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. . Auditions take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Call-backs follow from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. . People looking to audition are asked to come dressed for physical activity.

Cubicle to the Cage is a 13-episode docu-soap series conceived by Boyd Sharpe and produced by Hemmings House Pictures, with support from Palooka’s Executive Fitness and TitansMMA + Boxing. The series follows TitansMMA, a mixed martial arts camp, as it takes a group of students on a 12-month journey to become professional mixed martial artists. At the end of the program, the strongest students will compete on TV in their first professional fight. The series begins shooting in January 2012 and will air nationally in January 2013 on HD network radX.

Is it April Fool's Day again?

"At the end of the program, the strongest students will compete on TV in their first professional fight."


You're going to give somebody a professional fight after a year of training? This is another terrible idea.
