Let’s face it, the marquee event of any Summer Games is Women’s Gymnastics. With its electrifying routines and captivating personal stories, we can’t help but tune into the nightly broadcasts to take in all that is spectacular and dramatic.
Well, the good news is that you don’t have to wait until 2010 for the next installment of gymnastics action. Set to premiere on Monday, June 22, ABC Family’s new original series ‘Make It or Break It’ presents the dramatic story of four talented girls driven by unrelenting Olympic dreams. Set against the backdrop of an ultra-competitive training center, the girls learn that winning isn’t easy in an environment where your best friend is also your worst enemy.
The drama unfolds as gifted newcomer Emily Kmetko (Chelsea Hobbs – ‘Lords of Dogtown’) joins the ranks of three other girls (Ayla Kell, Josie Loren, Cassie Scerbo) who do not necessarily welcome the new competition. At the same time, each girl must contend with her own set of stressful circumstances – ranging from demanding coaches to critical parents… all in the pursuit of gymnastics glory.
‘Make It or Break It’ is sure to delight the gymnast (or fan) in all of us, for behind every gold medal is a captivating story about a girl with big dreams – dreams that do not necessarily come easy. Tune in to ABC Family for the world premiere of ‘Make It or Break It’ Monday, June 22 at 9pm/8c to catch all of the intense competition and gripping drama that accompanies every flip, twist, and somersault.
