Bring It!

Lifetime has announced a launch of a new programming block Wednesday nights, beginning March 5th, with the premiere of an all-new dance competition docu-series, titled Bring It! which will are at 10pm ET/PT.

Bring It!, produced by Pilgrim Studios, shines a spotlight on the elite world of hip-hop majorette competitions. 

Coach Dianna Williams (aka "Miss D") and her Dancing Dolls Troupe refuse to lose, pushing themselves to the limit each week in the relentless pursuit of victory. Every pump, thrust and high kick on Bring It! highlights the triumphs and struggles of intense competition, where errors aren't tolerated, mediocrity isn't excused and only a win is acceptable.

Founded in 2001 by Dianna Williams, or "Miss D," the Dancing Dolls of Jackson, Mississippi,  ages 7 to 17, are said to be one of the country's preeminent dance troupes, with over 15 Grand Champion titles and more than 100 trophies under their belt. 

Each episode of the series will follow the top Dolls and their dedicated moms as they prepare for cutthroat competitions, parades and showcases, culminating in battles against their biggest rivals. 

Miss D has a well-earned reputation for being both a fierce competitor and a phenomenal mentor who teaches her students the importance of a good education, persistence and positive self-worth. As they compete against dance troupes in Mississippi and Tennessee, Miss D pushes her team to the limit, demanding that they "bring it" each and every week.

Bring It! is produced by Pilgrim Studios. Executive producers for Pilgrim are Craig Piligian and Derek W. Wan. Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Colleen Conway Grogan executive produce the series for Lifetime. 

8 one-hour episodes of the series have been ordered for this season.

Here's a preview of the excitement that's to come:
