SUNDANCE CHANNEL'S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SERIES "PUSH GIRLS" BEGINS PRODUCTION IN LOS ANGELES FOR SEASON TWO
NEW YORK - November 15, 2012 -Sundance Channel announced today that their original and critically-acclaimed docu-series, "Push Girls" has begun production in Los Angeles for a 10-episode second season set to air in 2013. "Push Girls," touted as "captivating" by Time Magazine's James Poniewozik, was a conversation starter last June when it launched with widespread acclaim from both viewers and critics alike, for the genuine and ground-breaking depiction of four beautiful, intelligent and inspiring women who use wheelchairs.
In the highly-anticipated second season, Executive Producer Gay Rosenthal ("Ruby," "Little People, Big World") will continue to document the lives and friendship of Mia, Angela, Tiphany and Auti as they tackle modern social issues and everyday life. The series will also follow newly paralyzed Chelsie Hill, who seeks guidance from the girls as she enters her 20's as an independent young woman. From family dynamics, to new romances and career challenges, these women continue to balance it all and do it on their own terms.
"It is a privilege to explore the lives of these truly fascinating and independent women. Mia, Auti, Angela, Tiphany and Chelsie continue to prove that barriers can be broken if you are courageous enough to face your fears head on," remarked Sundance Channel General Manager Sarah Barnett. "Their generosity of spirit and willingness to go for their dreams in an adventurous way has made them favorites among Sundance viewers and makes us all believe that life is most certainly what you make of it."
