NEW YORK – May 16, 2011 – Union Square Agency (USSE Corp., Pink OTC Symbol: UCRP) today announced an all encompassing partnership agreement with Wrestlicious, an American all-female professional wrestling promotion.
This agreement is a 360 degree deal that leverages the best of both companies and should be the first of many future projects together. Union Square Agency will provide sponsorship sales, television production, syndication, media sales, event extensions, venue selection, strategic partnerships and manage licensing and merchandising.
In 2010, Wrestlicious launched their critically-acclaimed, Tampa-based female pro-wrestling series “Wrestlicious TakeDown”. Wrestlicious has a letter of intent from a Viacom-owned cable network to broadcast all-new episodes of the series in 2011 and Union Square Agency will oversee production. “Wrestlicious TakeDown” is the first action/comedy television program produced by Wrestlicious LLC, founded in 2008, which aired on Dish Network, via MAV TV in the United States and Bite TV in Canada, as well as in syndication. It features sketch comedy, on-location beach segments, music videos and other non-traditional components in addition to exciting wrestling action performed by ring veterans in colorful, over-the-top characters. www.wrestlicious.com
Johnny Cafarella, Wrestlicious Co-Executive Producer said “We are thrilled to partner with Union Square Agency to take Wrestlicious to the next level. This is a perfect fit given their positioning as a lifestyle agency and proven ability to grow properties.”
