ROLLERGIRLS is the rollicking, real-action show that puts you on the fast track of the Austin Thunderdome. Check out the five-team, all-girl league of tough and sexy young athletes who pay to skate and play to win. The...展开ir raucous bouts combine fierce competition with jaw-dropping outfits and crowd-pleasing personalities.
Formed in 2001 by TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls, the Austin league is a long way from your daddy's Roller Derby. Every non-scripted ROLLERGIRLS episode follows the women as they square off against each other on the track and then face everyday challenges with boyfriends and bosses off-track. Some have kids. Some are married. Some just want a body-busting wild time. There's glamour-girl Lux who bangs heads at night and works as a maternity nurse by day. The league "Air Jordan," aggressive Jammer Sister Mary Jane is a special ed teacher. Venis Envy, an art school graduate, is a rookie on the rise. Witty and warm, with model good looks, Cha Cha is one of the league's fastest skaters - and a single mom who really needs a break.
A 21st-century sports phenomenon, ROLLERGIRLS captures the rich detail of the league's over-the-top antics and adrenaline-drenched performances that are inspiring all-girl teams across the country. Like any great sports story, ROLLERGIRLS is rife with hotshots and hellions, rebels and rascals, the unsung and the underhanded - first-class competitors all. It's just that these sassy stars sport fishnets beneath their shin guards.
From the creative team that brought you MTV megahit, "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County," ROLLERGIRLS returns the all-American roller derby to the banked track, this time with a knuckle-busting good-time Texas twist.
