whip it

An adrenaline-fueled one hour action drama series set in New Orleans, where the worst team in the local roller derby league becomes a tribe for a group of women from all walks of life, including lawyers, chefs, social activists, bartenders-slash-tattoo-artists-slash-undiscovered-graphic novelists, Lyft drivers and everything in between – rich, poor, black, white, gay, straight, married, divorced, moms, not-moms, single moms. These women are brutal on skates and never allow one another to settle. Derby isn’t about winning or losing, it’s about survival – on and off the track. Based on the feature film Whip It, written for the screen by Shauna Cross as an adaption of her book, Derby Girl.
