The Sundance Channel is putting a new spin on the housewives craze. (Apologies for the bad pun). On April 17, the cable net will preview Push Girls, a new reality show from Gay Rosenthal (Ruby, Little People, Big World) that will focus on four Hollywood area women who live with paralysis. The 14-episode season will officially debut on June 5.
And who are the push girls? Angela is described as a “down-to-earth, stunningly gorgeous model who has recently become separated from her husband;” Auti is a dancer, rapper and “all-around powerhouse” who, at age 42, is hoping to have a baby with her husband; Mia is a former competitive swimmer who has an able-bodied boyfriend; and Tiphany is “doing some deep soul-searching about her sexuality, settling down and finding her calling in life.” The show will also check in with a 20-year-old gal named Chelsie, who was involved in a car accident that left her paralyzed.
Here’s a sneak peek:
