of Hit Docuseries Featuring MISS D and Her DANCING DOLLS Troupe
Bonus Episode, BRING IT! MISS D BREAKS IT DOWN, to Air on May 7
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 29, 2014) – When viewers ask, you Bring It! Lifetime has ordered ten additional episodes of its all-new hit docuseries Bring It! (#BringIt), produced by Pilgrim Studios, which shines a spotlight on the elite world of hip-hop majorette competitions, to premiere this summer. The program’s spring finale will air tomorrow night at 10:00pm ET/PT.
Lifetime also will air the hour-long bonus episode Bring It! Miss D Breaks It Down on Wednesday, May 7, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Hosted by Kim Coles (Living Single), it will feature a look back at the memorable moments from the program’s season, with Coach Dianna Williams (“Miss D”) taking viewers inside the world of hip-hop majorettes, where her Dancing Dolls and Baby Dancing Dolls teams showcase their signature moves and the parents dish about each other and the competition. The special also will include performances from the Dancing Dolls’ parents.
Bring It! follows Coach Dianna Williams, or “Miss D,” and her dancers as they refuse to lose and push themselves to the limit each week in the relentless pursuit of victory at high-powered dance competitions throughout the U.S. Every jump, step and high kick on the program highlights the triumphs and struggles of intense competition, where errors aren’t tolerated, mediocrity isn’t excused and only a win is acceptable.
Founded in 2001 by Miss D, the Dancing Dolls are one of the country’s preeminent dance troupes, with over 15 Grand Champion titles and more than 100 trophies under their belts. With their adorable smiles and unique, high-energy dance style, the Dolls, ages seven to 17, have taken the world of hip-hop majorette competition by storm. Each episode follows the top Dolls and their dedicated moms as they prepare for cutthroat competitions, parades and showcases, culminating in nail-biting stand-battles against their biggest rivals. Miss D has a well-earned reputation for being both a fierce competitor and a phenomenal mentor who teaches the importance of a good education, persistence and positive self-worth. As they compete against dance troupes in Mississippi and Tennessee, Miss D pushes her team to the limit, demanding that they “bring it” each and every week.
