Netflix has revealed a first look at Cheer, the original documentary series launching on the streaming service on Wednesday, January 8th. You can watch the trailer above and you’ll find the key art for the series below.
From the team behind Last Chance U, Netflix’s new documentary series Cheer follows the competitive cheerleaders of the National Championship-winning team at Navarro College in Corsicana, TX. Led by Monica Aldama, the small junior college has won 14 National Championships since 2000.
The stakes on the mat are high, but for these athletes, the only thing more brutal than their workouts and more exceptional than their performances are the stories of adversity and triumph behind the team members themselves.
Over the course of six episodes, viewers will join the Navarro College cheerleaders as they face injuries, sacrifice, personal setbacks and triumphs, all leading up to one nail-biting and adrenaline pumping final competition at the National Championship.
Cheer is produced by One Potato Productions, Boardwalk Pictures and Caviar. For One Potato, the executive producer is Greg Whiteley, the supervising producer is Adam Leibowitz, and the producers are Arielle Kilker and Chelsea Yarnell. For Boardwalk Pictures, the executive producers are Andrew Fried and Dane Lillegard. For Caviar, the executive producers are Jasper Thomlinson and Bert Hamelinck.
