AMC ‘Game of Arms’ Sneak Peek: Travis Bagent Prepares to Wrestle Sacramento

We’ve seen AMC dip its toes into reality competition series before, but now the network behind ‘The Walking Dead‘ and ‘Breaking Bad‘ is going arms deep. AMC’s new real-life drama ‘Game of Arms’ will pin its way onto TV screens beginning February 25, and we have a first look at North American champion Travis Bagent taking us through his home life and preparing to take on challengers from California.

For those unfamiliar with the concept, AMC’s ‘Game of Arms’ looks inside the raw and highly competitive world of American arm wrestling, following members of five regional clubs in the US, including Erie, PA, Kansas City, KS, New York, NY, Sacramento, CA and Baton Rouge, LA. The competitors travel around, wagering reputation, relationships and even money, as the series focuses both on the technique and skill of the sport, as well as the competitors’ family, career and personal struggles.

A first look at the February 25 premiere (above) follows top competitor Travis Bagent, of the Erie, PA “Wrecking Crew,” as he visits his formerly arm-wrestling father in preparation for a matchup with a five-man Sacramento team, specifically Tom Nelson. “My life mission is, have people talking about you; make a mark in this world, and make sure that you’re remembered,” says Bagent of his profile, enjoying the notoriety he experiences about town. “The only way to do that is to make sure that every chance I get, people know that I’m the best arm wrestler in the United States of America.”

‘Game of Arms’ arrives from Emmy-winning ‘Deadliest Catch’ producers Matt Renner and Ethan Prochnik, along with Undertow Films partner Dan Ilani. Take a look at Travis Bagent in the February 25 premiere promo above, and tell us in the comments if you’ll tune in for AMC’s latest reality competition!
