WWE Tough Enough will be filmed at both the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, and at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. The show will mark the inaugural use of the University’s latest high-caliber, on-campus production facility.
This is the latest partnership between WWE and the University, a partnership which started in 2012 with NXT. The WWE created a student scholarship fund, and also allows students of the university’s entertainment-focused degree programs, including Film, Show Production, Digital Arts and Design, Internet Marketing and Entertainment Business, to gain real-world experience alongside WWE’s professional production staff during WWE NXT tapings.
The show will be produced by WWE, USA Network and Left Hook Media. Matt Odgers and Scott Teti are Executive Producers for Left Hook Media. Jessica Sebastian is Vice President of Unscripted Series for USA Network. Kevin Dunn is Executive Producer for WWE.
Later this month, on May 25, the WWE Tough Enough app will be available for free download which will enable fans to vote live every week. The app will also allow fans to see exclusive content and take part in conversations between live telecasts.
