Ricky Schroder and Laura Bell Bundy will star in To the Mat, a new movie that will debut on CMT on Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Written by C. Jay Cox (Sweet Home Alabama), To the Mat tells the story of a laid-back ex-wrestler (Schroder) who's trying to keep his family's down-and-out Southern wrestling school above water. When his mother hires an uptight Wall Street consultant from New York (Bell Bundy) to help get the books in order, these two opposites must find a way to get along and save the family business. Directed by Rob Iscove (She's All That), To the Mat was filmed in British Columbia earlier this year. To the Mat is the first made-for-television movie to be released as part of the CMT Original Movies franchise, the network's newly-formed division of original television movies.
