[via press release from CMT]


NASHVILLE - March 14, 2012 - CMT will grow its fall lineup with the addition of a new one-hour, six-episode series CHEER, it was announced today by Jayson Dinsmore, EVP, Development and Programming, CMT. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' Milojo Productions will produce CHEER, which documents hard-driving coach Patty Ann Romero and her elite competitive cheerleading team as they journey toward the world cheerleading championships. The series is in production now and will debut in September, along with a seventh season of CMT's hit series DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS: MAKING THE TEAM.

"Kelly and Mark's passion for this project, along with the sport's universal appeal, make this a fantastic project for CMT," says Dinsmore. "This series, paired with the powerhouse DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS, promises to be the next breakout hit on the network."

"We're thrilled to be showing off the real world of competitive cheerleading," says Ripa and Consuelos. "Having been a cheerleader, I know all too well what these girls give up to join forces and compete," Ripa adds. "After meeting Patty Ann we knew her program was the perfect place to show everyone what it's all about."

CHEER will go inside the high stakes, high pressure world of competitive cheerleading with tough-as-nails coach, Patty Ann Romero. Romero's senior team consists of 20 highly-conditioned athletes capable of jaw-dropping stunts and perfectly choreographed dance moves. When they're not practicing in their gym, these ordinary teenage girls must balance a grueling schedule of conditioning and competitions along with school and the pressures of everyday life. Romero dominates in the gym, but she's like a second mother to her team and will do what it takes to make sure they succeed on the mat and in life. CHEER is produced by Milojo Productions with Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos, Albert Bianchini and Julia Silverton serving as executive producers.
