HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW DOCU-SERIES "PUSH GIRLS"
SET TO PREMIERE MONDAY, JUNE 4TH ON SUNDANCE CHANNEL
NEW YORK, NY - April 30, 2012 - Sundance Channel will offer viewers an unfettered, uncensored glimpse at what it means to be sexy, ambitious and living with paralysis in Hollywood, with the highly anticipated docu-series, "Push Girls," now set to premiere on Monday, June 4th at 10 PM. The 14-part series 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. From executive producer Gay Rosenthal ("Little People, Big World," "Ruby"), "Push Girls" captures the daily challenges and personal triumphs of these women, and will shatter all expectations of what life in a wheelchair can be.
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.
