Hollywood producer to visit Marlintini's

At last month’s Roughhouse Friday Boxing night at Marlintini’s Lounge, Marlintini’s staff filmed a “teaser” video for a potential spot on a reality show. Apparently Hollywood liked what they saw. Last week, a few phone calls were made from the Discovery Studios to Marlintini’s owner Ethan Billings and boxing promoter Bob Haag, and plans were made to move forward.

This Friday, Edward Barbini from Discovery Studios in Los Angeles will visit Marlintini’s with a film crew to film Roughhouse Friday Boxing for possible inclusion on a future program on roughhouse boxing.

“Roughhouse Friday and Marlintini’s welcome Mr. Barbini and the Discovery Studios film crew to Juneau and hope all the boxers, MMA fighters, ring girls, and boxing fans are ready for Hollywood!” Billings said in a press release.

Stay tuned for more details.
