On the heels of its critically lauded, highly anticipated premiere last week, Sundance Channel announced the renewal of the network’s first wholly owned original scripted series RECTIFY for ten new episodes slated to air in 2014.

“Once in a great while a show comes along to remind us that reality television need not be defined by The Real Housewives or Jersey Shore. That, in fact, there are wonderful and valuable things the genre can do that scripted shows simply cannot. PUSH GIRLS is one of those shows.”
-Los Angeles Times

Sundance Channel announced today that their original and critically-acclaimed docu-series PUSH GIRLS has begun production in Los Angeles for a 10-episode second season set to air in 2013. PUSH GIRLS, touted as “captivating” by Time Magazine’s James Poniewozik, was a conversation starter last June when it launched with widespread acclaim from both viewers and critics alike, for the genuine and ground-breaking depiction of four beautiful, intelligent and inspiring women who use wheelchairs.

BEGINNING NOVEMBER 2011

Original Series Starring Creative Director of Elle Joe Zee
Will Conclude its First Season on May 24th
New York, May 24, 2011 – Sundance Channel announced the renewal of ALL ON THE LINE, the fashion-rescue series starring Creative Director of ELLE Joe Zee. The series wraps its first run on Tuesday, May 24th at 10:00PM ET/PT.

Since the series premiered in March, Sundance Channel has exposed viewers to the always intense and not so glamorous, behind-the-scenes world of fashion designing. Behind the glamour of the red carpet are tears, hard work and passionate designers struggling to shine in a world of hopefuls. In the second season, Zee will be faced with the daunting task of working with a new group of designers with the same problem; a glitch in their design or business that is putting them at risk of losing it all. He hopes to encourage designers to stay true to their vision, while recognizing when their design or business plan is standing in the way of their commercial success. Feeling like experts in their own right, not all of the designers will be up for the challenge of accepting Zee’s constructive criticism, causing tension and sparking emotion.

Sundance Channel EVP and GM Sarah Barnett commented, “ALL ON THE LINE stands out among fashion programs because it’s based in the real world, with real stakes and real results. Viewers have embraced this authenticity, are enamored with the unpretentious fashion genius Joe Zee and look forward to seeing him back in action.”
