WWE is developing a new series for their fledgling Network that would exclusively feature Cruiserweight style wrestlers, has confirmed.

As we noted several months ago in the Elite section, WWE had been compiling a list of Cruiser-sized talent that they could bring in. The list was as part of the development of this potential series.

WWE has started to reach out to a number of independent talents in recent weeks. The belief among those I spoke with is that the company is looking for talents to be in the 200 lb. range.

When and how the show would be shot I haven't confirmed, but WWE is interested in the Full Sail University's gym facility in Florida, where they shot several test pilots. WWE officials loved the state of the art look of the building.

WWE is planning a Fall debut for their Network.
