FROM A PRESS RELEASE:
Kingdom is a raw family drama set against the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in Venice, California. Alvey Kulina owns Navy St. MMA with the help of his girlfriend Lisa. He is willing to go through extraordinary means to make sure his fighters are taken care of, but all of this responsibility comes at a steep price. He has complicated relationships with both of his sons, Jay and Nate, who are both struggling with their own identities and place in Alvey’s life and gym. Byron Balasco is creator, executive producer and showrunner.
The Kingdom cast stars Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier; Homefront; Warrior) as Alvey Kulina, a Mixed Martial Arts legend and owner of Navy St. MMA gym based in Venice, CA; Kiele Sanchez (The Glades; Lost) as Lisa Prince, Alvey’s girlfriend; Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights) as Ryan Wheeler, the world-class athlete who had it all, including Lisa Prince, until his spiraling drug addiction landed him in prison; Jonathan Tucker (Parenthood) as Jay Kulina, Alvey’s eldest son; Nick Jonas as Nate Kulina, Alvey’s youngest son and the prized fighter at the gym and Joanna Going (House of Cards; Mad Men) as Christina Kulina, Alvey’s estranged wife and mother to Jay and Nate.
When word gets out that superstar Ryan Wheeler is training with Alvey, Navy St. MMA gym begins to gain some attention. Finally, Alvey begins to taste a bit of the glamour to go with the grit. He is willing to go through extraordinary means to make sure his fighters are taken care of, but all of this success and responsibility comes at a steep price. Despite Lisa’s pleas to Alvey not to let her ex train at the gym, suspecting he has ulterior motives and knowing her feelings for him are unresolved, Alvey let the wolf in the door on the grounds that his relationship with Lisa is solid and the belief that Ryan is ready for the road to redemption. Ryan, however, is not the only superstar at Navy St. MMA making headlines. Lisa’s reputation as a savvy businesswoman is beginning to grow outside of the Navy St MMA gym walls. She is approached by investors who want to put money into Alvey’s gym and it may be impossible for her to say no. Is his comeback truly about wanting to make amends or will too much fame, money and access threaten Ryan’s intentions and his return to glory? For Jay, if he can start earning money by getting back into the cage, he might be able to get his mother Christina off of the streets and settle the score with the guys who assaulted his brother Nate, who is forced to take a hiatus from fighting to recover from his injuries.

From the hilarious and inspired (and sexy) Jack Plotnick, Space Station 76 is available now on Digital HD and is out on DVD September 30 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. In case you haven't heard of a movie with Matt Bomer and Patrick Wilson—both!—in it, it's described as follows in a press release:
“Welcome to a 1970s’ version of the future, where the pants are wide, the music is groovy, and the new frontier is interplanetary. When a new assistant captain (Liv Tyler) arrives on the Omega 76,
tensions spark, and more than asteroids collide. This smart and quirky film-festival favorite also
stars Patrick Wilson, Jerry O’Connell and Matt Bomer.”
