Pilgrim Teams Up with the World Surf League for New Sports Content

Pilgrim Media Group, the studio that took the sports world by storm with The Ultimate Fighter, is excited to announce that we have made a deal with the WSL Studios, a new division of the World Sports League for original surfing content.

WSL President of Content and Media, Erik Logan said, “Partnering with Pilgrim from the onset of WSL Studios sets the bar for the level of quality we are endeavoring to achieve. Their talent for producing top-notch unscripted programming, particularly when it comes to emerging sports, and their unmatched ability to capture the inaccessible for audiences around the world make Pilgrim an incredible partner for the WSL.”

In the the development pipeline is a feature documentary as well as a bold, new competitive sports series along the lines of The Ultimate Fighter in partnership with the UFC’s Dana White.

“This collaboration embodies the true intent of media in breaking ground and erasing boundaries,” said Craig Piligian, Pilgrim founder and CEO. “It’s about bringing to new audiences a sport and a way of life that has been geographically confined to ocean coastlines. We’re really excited to collaborate with WSL in this truly unique space.”
