A new web series will debut at the end of this month starring former WWE champion Chris Jericho. According to a press release sent out on Oct. 23, the show will be called “But I’m Chris Jericho” and kicks off next week.
“But I’m Chris Jericho” will be a 10-episode series where Jericho plays a fictional version of himself. In the new web series, Jericho will play a former wrestler who lost it all and is now trying to reinvent himself as a wrestler. He tries to somehow learn to survive while starting at the bottom of the acting ladder, after being at the top of the wrestling business for so long.
Also appearing in the web series is Andy Kindler (Bob’s Burgers) as Jericho’s bumbling agent, Phil Blank and Canadian comedian Scott Thompson (The Kids in the Hall) as Chris’s over-the-top acting teacher, A.J. Mirkin.
On top of the show, there will be interactive content launching every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday to go along with “But I’m Chris Jericho.” There will also be 11 other web episodes with characters from the main web series. There will also be behind-the-scenes footage from the show.
The web series will debut on Oct. 29 at the website butimchrisjericho.com with the season premiere and can also be viewed on youtube.com/actiontv.
