Defying Gravity is a 6-part docuseries that explores the untold story of women's gymnastics through its greatest champions. It features 2021 Team USA Olympics hopefuls, as well as gymnasts including Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman, Jordyn Weiber, and more.

“It has been one of the greatest privileges of my directing career to be able to share the stories of so many incredible women in the sport of gymnastics,” series director Bess Kargman said in a statement. “Defying Gravity spotlights the fierce passion, courage and tenacity of so many inspiring athletes – including Nadia Comaneci, Laurie Hernandez, Katelyn Ohashi, Aly Raisman and so many more. I am elated the world will soon get to learn more about their powerful stories.”
