Foley Productions along with Producers Gail Bleckman (the show's creator), Jonathan Mankuta, Steve Strangio, and Richard O'Sullivan.

But after only a few short months as "Smackdown" color commentator, Foley came to the conclusion that the job wasn't for him.

"Apparently Mick grew tired of [WWE head] Vince McMahon screaming in his ear," says O'Sullivan. "It was one thing that his schedule with WWE restricted him from working on outside projects, but McMahon's on-set behavior drove Mick to the conclusion that he'd be better off working in a less stressful environment."


Foley worked out the remainder of his contract with WWE, then signed with a rival wrestling organization called TNA (Total Nonstop Action), which airs on the Spike cable network. That deal includes "other opportunities" for Foley to pursue his acting and writing careers.


"As we stated a few months ago, Mick needed to get out of 'the wrestling vacuum' and fortunately for both him and us, that's exactly what he's doing," says Bleckman. "TNA and Spike see this as a great opportunity to let Mick be Mick, and we're delighted because that means we can resume work on 'Hey Dude!,' which was built around Mick's true-life personality."


Now re-attached to the comedy project, Foley will play a character named "Mick Foley," a former pro wrestler and author who is pursuing an acting career.


"We searched for a replacement for Mick," says Strangio. "But the truth is, this thing was created for him and plugging someone else into it just didn't work. We're all extremely happy that he's back onboard."


Currently in talks with network execs to land "Hey Dude!" a home, producers hope to roll by Spring of 2009.


"Mick's a unique personality who needed a unique project to suit him," says Mankuta, who also stars in "Hey Dude!" as Foley's best friend, Marky. "There's nothing quite like 'Hey Dude!' on television and I think people are really gonna respond to that."


Also joining "Hey Dude!" is reality show favorite Rupert Boneham (from the CBS mega-hit "Survivor"). Producers are still in talks with several other noted names to fill out what O'Sullivan says will be "the quirkiest cast on television."

Got that right. Seriously, Foley is so 1999 and his persona wore out its welcome years ago.

You got it.  Do a Google search for any of the names or elements of this "project" and all lead back to O'Sullivan's own website - doubt these people even exist outside of Dickie's little world

Didn't Dickie once do a long, elaborate interview of himself and post it on his website?

Jon Mankuta is an "enthusiastic" collector of original comic book art. I have seen his want lists in comic collectible magazines, if I recall. A nobody in acting, that is for sure.

Actually, this is legit.  I'll share more about it when Im able.  There are a few notable names involved that for (whatever) reason, I cant share.

I think Sullivan missed his calling.  He should have a web-cam show with paid membership (like $1 per year:)).  From everything we've read about and from him (and his sockos), he's pretty entertaining.

No thanks, if I wanna see a loser masturbate to giraffe documentaries while acting out his favorite low budget movie lines, I'll just get myself drunk.

I wonder if he's found himself a new set of Marks to sponge off of in Minnesota after drying out his resources in the southeast? I gotta think people who finance this shit are at about the same level of those who finance indy rasslin' shows.

Yes, except in Minnesota they run skating rinks instead of bowling alleys.

So on this show....is Mick going to open up a dude ranch and hire a bunch of teenagers to help him run it? Will it be on Nickelodeon?
