The next big show everyone will be watching
There is something about the optimism of the cheerleader that represents the best of what America strives to be, and what the rest of the world has always admired: if you just keep smiling, everything will keep getting better.
In every other traditionally female sport like dance, figure skating, and gymnastics we are subjected to a competitive experience where only one woman wins. Cheerleading is different. It’s the ultimate team sport where no one is replaceable without changing the dynamics of skills, the flow of the routine and the bond of the team. Women learn to work together in the ultimate team sport, one in which their lives literally depend on their teammates.
Trophies will follow the young women of the world champion team, Cheer Legacy Lightning, who 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, 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.
The young women who grow up cheering grow up learning about the power of women working together despite their differences. They learn the discipline to love the one you hate in order to serve the greater good and to cheer for your competition even in the face of defeat.
Trophies will take us behind the smiles as we explore what it is those smiles are trying to escape. Through the teenage conflicts with their mothers, and the pressures of living up to their Instagram fame, we will witness the truth about the difficulty of putting the good of your team above your own needs in an increasingly individualistic society. A society where it seems as though even our parents think it is best to look out for number one. But it’s not possible to be selfish as a cheerleader, or, at least, it’s not possible to be selfish and win.
