A&E Sets the Premiere Date for Rodeo GirlsAnd you thought there couldn’t possibly be any segment of the population that hadn’t already been the topic of a reality show, didn’t you? How wrong you are as A&E will premiere a new real life series on December 11, 2013 about female barrel racers. The series, Rodeo Girls, will have a six episode season one run.
The series follows five women who “pack up their lives and their horses, to test their skills at rodeos across the country.” Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein, Meryl Poster, Patrick Reardon, Barbara Schneeweiss, Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, Nina L. Diaz, Sara Mast, Darcy LaPier, Roe Baker, Lily Neumeyer, and Devon Graham serve as executive producers.
Follow model-turned-rodeo-queen Darcy “No Fear” LaPier. With three famous husbands behind her, Darcy brings a big checkbook as well as her grit and determination to the competition. Marvel Murphy, a seasoned rider whose wild past haunts her at every fair ground and keeps her running in and out of the ring. Former champ Barb West returns to the circuit to reclaim her title after getting married and spending two years nesting at home. Rookie racer Megan Etcheberry grew up on the circuit, but still needs to win some races before she can officially call herself a pro. Youth barrel racing champ, Jessica Holmberg has the skills to compete, but not always the funds. Where there are cowgirls there are sure to be cowboys, Ty Murphy is the hot headed cousin and trainer of Marvel, who is good with horses and bad with women. Anthony Lucia, a professional stunt roper and amateur Lothario, wines and dines more than one cowgirl. These ladies prove that rodeo life is more than just boots, chaps and spurs. Tumultuous relationships and fierce competitions leave plenty of drama to go around.
