NEW ORIGINIAL NON FICTION SERIES
“PUSH GIRLS” TO PREMIERE ON
SUNDANCE CHANNEL, TUESDAY APRIL 17TH
NEW YORK, NY (February 8, 2012) – Sundance Channel rolls out its spring season with the groundbreaking docu-series “Push Girls,” premiering April 17th at 10pm ET/PT. “Push Girls,” a new series from producer Gay Rosenthal (“Ruby,” “Little People, Big Word”), traces the lives of four dynamic, outspoken and beautiful women who, by accident or illness, have been paralyzed from the neck or the waist down.
Taking a matter-of-fact attitude towards their disabilities, “Push Girls” offers a candid view of the women as they pursue their own claims to happiness as they enter different stages of their lives. Angela is a down-to-earth, stunningly gorgeous model who has recently become separated from her husband. Auti, a dancer, rapper, actress and all-around powerhouse, is crossing her fingers that, at age 42, she can try for a baby with her husband. Reflective and pragmatic Mia is taking stock of her relationship with her able-bodied boyfriend; a onetime competitive swimmer, she is about to attempt to swim for the first time since high school. Flirty, wisecracking Tiphany is doing some deep soul-searching about her sexuality, settling down and finding her calling in life.
Marco Bresaz and Jonathan Grosskopf serve as “Push Girls” Executive Producers for Sundance Channel.
