It seems most of the suits couldn’t quite see past the fighting part of MMA and couldn’t wrap their heads around the show pitch that would become “Kingdom” when creator and writer Byron Balasco was presenting it. But DIRECTV took a run at it, and soon Balasco had a greenlit project – and an order for a 10-episode first season, without even having to worry about whether or not a pilot episode would be successful
