Having a bit of an association with some of the people involved, this will hopefully be a pretty decent show & finally show derby as it is now, not like it was in the 50's thru late 90's (Roller Jam). I mean, aside from The Fosters, one wouldn't know it's a real sport with real athletes and real training (in some cases Olympic-level training) based on many of the portrayals Hollywood has done so far. Sadly, just showing up & you're playing a week later in "the big game" is about as factual as a waterboy turning into a star linebacker overnight.

Funny enough, I also know/knew a lot of the people that did those too as there aren't too many locations they can actually set up & film a bout pretty much "on demand".
