Janell Smith and Arnie Reyes' 'The Next Dragon' Wins at ProShow

Austin-based producers and NALIP members Janell Smith and Arnie Reyes (LPA 2008, LWL 2005), and LA-based producer Phil Abatecola are happy to announce that their project The Next Dragon has won in the reality television category at the Producers Guild of America's ProShow competition.
Among other prizes the TND team has secured a development deal with the Ryan Seacrest Production company. TND producers will work with the RSP team to further develop and bring to television screens the show.
The Next Dragon is an action/adventure reality show that challenges its contestants about what it takes to work in the stunt and martial arts industry. The contestants will compete against one another each week as they learn new skills and are pushed further and further out of their comfort zone. By the end of the competition one competitor will emerge as “The Next Dragon,” prepared to follow in the footsteps of other well known martial arts legends such as Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Chuck Norris, and Jet Li.
