TLC Brings Viewers Exclusive Access to Top Figure Skaters Alissa Czisny and Bebe Liang As They Fight for a Slot on the Olympic Team

- Who Are Alissa Czisny and Bebe Liang? ICE DIARIES Takes Viewers Behind-the-Scenes and Into the Lives of These World-Class Ice Skaters -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Jan. 11 -- TLC's new six-part documentary series ICE DIARIES, airing Fridays at 10 PM (ET/PT), has exclusive access to top skaters Bebe Liang and Alissa Czisny on-and-off the ice as they trained and competed for their chance at Olympic glory. Now, in the elite circle of skaters eyeing a possible slot on Team USA, it's down to the wire for Alissa and Bebe, with the U.S. National Figure Skating Championship this weekend, and only three spots open on the U.S. Olympic team. Who are these new skating phenoms all of America will be talking about? Only TLC goes behind-the-scenes with Alissa and Bebe to see what it took to get them this chance of a lifetime.

ICE DIARIES chronicles the lives of these young women as they make the final push towards achieving their dream, and shows the guts, determination and motivation they possess that is crucial to their success. On the brink of achieving international acclaim, Bebe is one of the most athletic female skaters on the circuit today, having surpassed her coaches' expectations by now working on jumps usually reserved for men. After winning Skate Canada and placing second at Skate America in 2005, Alissa is now known as an unexpected rising star whose style and grace is compared to that of Nancy Kerrigan and Peggy Fleming.

Follow the girls off the ice and meet their family and friends, tutors and teachers that motivate our skaters and shape their worlds, and see how the girls' dedication to the sport distinguishes them from their peers. From failures and pain to success and victory, TLC captures all of the jitters and exhilaration as Alissa and Bebe axel, lutz and toe-loop their way to victory!

ICE DIARIES is produced by TWI-IMG for TLC. Steve Mayer, Susan R. Horowitz and Mark R. Freeman are the executive producers for TWI-IMG, and Elizabeth J. Browde is the executive producer for TLC.
