Streaming giant Netflix has ordered a docuseries about competitive college cheerleaders, per Deadline. The series will be titled Cheer and is slated to be released on January 8, with six episodes.
Directed and executive produced by Greg Whitely from fellow sports series Last Chance U, the docuseries follows the cheer squad of fourteen-time NCA National Champions, Navarro College. Netflix’s synopsis reads:
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.
So, we can expect a lot of cheerleading, happy feelings and dramatic crying amidst hardship and all that good stuff.
