Project Diverge #OperationNewWave returns to PCTV Starting 2.5.21
In a bit of fun news, Piscataway Television (PCTV) has decided to re-broadcast Project: Diverge #OperationNewWave on its airwaves, beginning tomorrow night, February 5, 2021, at 9PM.
Project: Diverge, after a multi-month build through social media platforms, ran on April 21, 2018 at the Old Bridge Elks in Old Bridge, NJ. An eight man, single-elimination tournament, DIVERGE brought an old school flair to modern day professional wrestling. 8 artists with 8 different styles, Diverge built a small buzz in Central New Jersey, culminating with a five-day binge of the five television episodes, airing on ProjectDiverge.com from December 21, 2018 to Christmas Day.
In March 2019, PCTV aired Operation New Wave in an edited, television style format to, again, a solid buzz across Central New Jersey.
Project: Diverge was founded by Jon Harder, podcaster and independent wrestling commentator. Brian Belzer, also a member of PCTV, completely shaped the pre-production phase to a phenomenal aesthetic, both behind the camera and to the finished product inside the Old Bridge Elks. Nicholas F. Reigota and Scott Glazer both handled the post-production end of Diverge to a fantastic finish. Furthermore, Doug Seidel handled the edit of the online material and successfully transferred it over to be TV ready.
