AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 14th, 2008 — Owned Entertainment, Inc. CEO Eric Alfio, on behalf of Owned Entertainment, Inc., announced today that the company has completed filming on a show set in the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) with the working title "MMA Legacy." Principal photography took place in July of this year and wrapped the first week of August. Owned President James Hergott (All That I Need) directed and executive produced the project along with Jason Chambers (MMA Fighter and host of the History Channel's "Human Weapon").
