Oxygen Greenlights Series ‘Pretty Strong’ Following Female Legends Football League

Oxygen is stepping into the game, greenlighting the docuseries “Pretty. Strong.” The cabler announced the order on Monday.

The series will follow the women who play for the Chicago Bliss, the reigning champ in the all-female Legends Football League. The team is in pursuit of a three-peat championship title, and its sisterhood is put to the test as individual players tackle issues with their careers, families and love lives.

“The fearless, adrenaline-fueled women of the gridiron featured in ‘Pretty. Strong.’ are aspirational for our young, female-driven audience,” said Rod Aissa, EVP of original programming and development for Oxygen Media. “They prove there are no limits in life or sports and lay bare the heart and hustle it takes to be their true selves despite social norms.”

“Pretty. Strong.” is produced by Relativity Television and Ellen Rakieten Entertainment with Tom Forman, Brad Bishop and Ellen Rakieten exec producing.

In other new series news, Oxygen’s upcoming “Rich in Faith” will premiere on Dec. 2.
