A&E NETWORK GREENLIGHTS "RODEO GIRLS" (WORKING TITLE) TO SERIES

EIGHT EPISODE ORDER FROM THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY ENTERS THE CHIC AND CUTTHROAT WORLD OF FEMALE RODEO COMPETITORS

Pasadena, CA - January 4, 2013 - A&E Network has lassoed its newest original real life series "Rodeo Girls" (working title) from The Weinstein Company. Pre-production has commenced on the network's eight one-hour episode order. The announcement was made today by David McKillop, Executive Vice President of Programming for A&E Network and BIO Channel.

"Rodeo Girls" goes behind the scenes and offers a glimpse into the lavish and glamorous world of the women of the pro rodeo circuit. Proving that these competitions are more than just cowboy boots, chaps and spurs, these prominent and privileged rodeo queens are the exception to the rule. Made up of equal parts rhinestones and blue jeans, the ladies of the rodeo work hard, ride fast and play rough. As they travel around the country competing in their sport, these women are fueled by motivation to win, bringing their colorful attitudes with them.

Hailing from backgrounds as diverse as their credit card purchases, these women are in the center of it all and have the big rigs to prove it. Whether coming from million dollar mansions, carpools and inheritances, or working nights to make ends meet, the fierce opponents give it their all as they compete each weekend. All cattiness and drama aside, these tough cowgirls will stop at nothing to fulfill their dreams of being crowned national champion. Of course when everyone is chasing the same goal, there is plenty of backstabbing to go around... not to mention plenty of cowboys!

"We are thrilled to be working with The Weinstein Company on 'Rodeo Girls,'" said McKillop. "The women of the competitive barrel racing world are formidable athletes living sensational lives and we are excited for our viewers to go along for the wild ride."

"Rodeo Girls" is executive produced by Meryl Poster, Barbara Schneeweiss, Roe Baker and Darcy Lapier for The Weinstein Company and Stephen Land for Jupiter Entertainment. Executive producers for A&E are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant, Lily Neumeyer and Devon Graham.
