The docu-series “Push Girls” opens its second season on Monday, June 3rd at 10pm et/pt with ten all-new episodes.
From Sundance Channel, the show features four women, Angela, Auti, Mia, and Tiphany, who, through various circumstances, are living their lives wheelchair-bound.
This season, the women explore new romances, tackle longstanding issues, mentor newly injured patients, and try out modern technologies that will allow them to pursue happiness and independence on their own terms. Also profiled is 21-year old Chelsie Hill, a dancer, who has been paralyzed for four years. She looks to the women for guidance as she moves away from her parents for the first time and finds herself in a serious relationship with an able-bodied man.
Sarah Barnett, President of Sundance Channel offers this about the show, “Push Girls’ shows the world that women in wheelchairs can be every bit as daring, ambitious and downright engaging as anybody else on television. We love that this show breaks down a few stereotypes at the same time as being fantastically entertaining.”
The series from executive producer Gay Rosenthal (“Ruby,” “Little People, Big World”), continues to draw an overwhelming support from the disability community. “This is not a TV show about paralysis,” said Peter Wilderotter, president and CEO of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. “This is a show about four friends who happen to have paralysis. And that’s the entire point. It’s not only good TV, but it is important TV as well.”
“Push Girls” airs Mondays at 10e/p on Sundance Channel.
