New York, NY – April 27, 2023 – WE tv, AMC Networks’ destination for compelling unscripted television, today announced the greenlight of Breaking The Ice. Produced by Sirens Media, the 8-episode docuseries follows Washington DC-based ice skating champion, Rory Flack, and her groundbreaking journey leading the first all diverse, competitive synchronized ice skating team. The series will debut this summer exclusively on WE tv and sister streamer ALLBLK.
World-renowned figure skater Rory Flack is no stranger to slicing through barriers, as the first African American woman to win the US Open Professional Figure Skating Championships. The figure skater-turned-coach is now spearheading Team DMV, the first all diverse, competitive synchronized skating team striving to make it to the Ice Sports Industry’s (ISI) national championship. The team is comprised of 10 middle and high school girls who are up for this challenge. Together, they endure rigorous training on and off the ice, and must manage team dynamics, as well as outspoken parents and skating rivals. On their way to Nationals, Team DMV is defying the odds: will they navigate the inherent danger of the ice and avoid injury? Or push through the obstacles…ultimately, Breaking The Ice!
Breaking The Ice is produced for WE tv by ITV America’s Sirens Media. Mioshi Hill, Tim Cohen-Laurie and Wendi Wan executive produce for Sirens Media; Jon Crowley and Burt Kearns also serve as Executive Producers. Angela Molloy executive produces for WE tv.
