In the same way MURDERBALL, winner of the 2005 Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, took the lid off the competitive world of “wheelchair rugby,” Sundance Channel is bringing an unfettered, uncensored glimpse at what it means to be sexy, ambitious and living with paralysis in Hollywood with "PUSH GIRLS"
, a new original non-fiction series from producer Gay Rosenthal (Ruby, Little People, Big World). Sundance Channel has ordered 14 episodes of the half-hour long docu-series, tracing the lives of four dynamic, outspoken and beautiful women who, by accident or illness, have been paralyzed from the neck or the waist down. The announcement was made today by Sarah Barnett, Sundance Channel General Manager.
"The indomitable spirit of this series will give viewers permission to stare at a world that they may previously have been too polite - or too frightened - to explore,” says Barnett. “Sundance Channel allows the 'Push Girls'
to convey the stark reality of their lives, something our broadminded audience will appreciate. We are remarkably fortunate to get to work with this exceptional group of women." (Source:
