The next big show everyone will be watching…
Hollywood takes on competitive cheerleading, and this time they’re doing it right. Trust us, you want to be a part of this experience.
What’s the show about?
The young women of the world champion team, Cheer Legacy Athletics Lightning, have a reputation to protect—a reputation forged through triumph and tragedy. After back-to-back world championship wins in front of 50,000 screaming fans and an audience of 2 million on tv, the pressure is high to win again. But when their beloved coach Leslie Day collapses at Nationals from an aneurysm, they are left grieving and without a leader… wondering if this sport that they’ve given up everything for is worth it.
Enter Caroline Marshall, a broke and disgraced former world-champion caliber coach, and co-founder of Cheer Legacy Athletics. Today, she is scraping by at a job she hates after being pushed out of the industry ten years ago because of her addiction issues. Now sober, she’s trying to keep her head above water. Initially coaxed back into the industry after ten years by her sister, Caroline ultimately decides to go back to Cheer Legacy to finish the season for Leslie; but Cheer Legacy is also her sister’s biggest rival gym.
As the Legacy Lightning cheerleaders attempt to regain their world champion title during a season rife with conflict, loss, parental interference, and the trappings of cheerlebrity, Caroline finds purpose in leading these elite athletes, reigniting their passion for a sport they all love. Even more than most, the precision sport of cheerleading doesn’t have room for the individual greatness, only excellence in service to the team. It is a test of letting go. Letting go of the past, of the future, of the ego, of those you love, and of those you hate.
