All Elite Wrestling‘s Cody & Brandi Rhodes will star in an upcoming unscripted series Rhodes to the Top on TNT.

The half-hour series will “take viewers behind-the-scenes as the powerhouse couple manage their ever-busier lives inside and outside the ring, all the while surrounded by a colorful and often hilarious motley crew of wrestlers, family and friends who both support and test them at every turn,” according to TNT.

A special first look a the show was unveiled during this week’s AEW Dynamite, and showed the Rhodes’ both at home with family and working behind the scenes for the Jacksonville-based promotion as they prepare for the birth of their first child.

Warner Bros. Unscripted Television and Shed Media will produce “Rhodes to the Top,” with Dan Peirson and Lisa Shannon of Shed Media; Bernie Cahill and Jon Kanak of Activist Artists Management; and AEW founder Tony Khan executive producing.

“I’ve witnessed firsthand the passion and dedication that Cody and Brandi put into every facet of their life and know how much that plays an instrumental role in the success and expansion of AEW,” said Sam Linsky, co-head of scripted for TBS, TNT and truTV. “Now the world will get an inside look at how they balance their personal wrestling careers, their training center, and their executive roles at AEW as they venture into one of the most intimidating chapters of life, parenthood.”

As the son of the legendary Dusty Rhodes, and brother to Dustin Rhodes, Cody has been at the epicenter of wrestling royalty since birth. In addition to serving as EVP at AEW, Cody is a two-time TNT Champion, and has been involved in some of the most spectacular matches in AEW history.

AEW’s Chief Brand Officer and soon-to-be mom Brandi Rhodes is also a professional wrestler, actor, former competitive figure skater, and host of her own cooking show, A Shot of Brandi. Brandi is also the first Black woman to hold an executive position in a professional wrestling company.

Corie Henson, EVP, Head of Unscripted for TBS, TNT and truTV added: “AEW fans know Brandi and Cody inside the ring, and Rhodes to the Top will peel back the curtain of their lives off the mat. Running a business together as the stars of ‘Dynamite,’ juggling friends and family, and introducing a new baby into the Rhodes dynasty is sure to be a wild ride.”
