Sundance renews ‘Push Girls’

Reality series focuses on four paralyzed women

Sundance Channel has given a second season to reality series “Push Girls.”

Though the AMC-owned cabler is not rated, reaction and buzz for “Push Girls” has been strong. Decision was a relatively easy one for g.m. Sarah Barnett.

“It’s been a great story for us,” Barnett told Variety. “It’s a show that feels true to our documentary roots and real. It’s distinctive, and not copycat.”

Docuseries examines four paralyzed women — Angela Rockwood, Auti Angel, Mia Schaikewitz and Tiphany Adams — who confront life’s challenges in a wheelchair with an unfettered reality.

Skein is from exec producer Gay Rosenthal.

“I’m grateful to these incredible women who allowed me the opportunity to share their lives and stayed open and honest through the filming process,” Rosenthal said. “I’m delighted that I get the chance to continue to share their stories with the world.”

Current 14-episode season began June 4 and ends Aug. 27. Barnett said no decision has been made on the episode order for season two.
