'Defying Gravity' Nominated for Outstanding Sports Program by the Producers Guild of America

February 25, 2021

The Producers Guild of America has nominated Five All's "Defying Gravity: The Untold Story of Women's Gymnastics" for Outstanding Sports Program in the 2021 PGA Awards.

The YouTube Originals six-part documentary series, which premiered in September 2020, explores what it takes to be an Elite gymnast, told through the voices of its greatest champions. Five All produced the project alongside Main Event Media/All3Media.

"Defying Gravity" is nominated alongside four HBO programs: "Hard Knocks: Los Angeles," "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," "Seeing America with Megan Rapinoe," and "The Shop: UNINTERRUPTED Featuring President Barack Obama." It's not everyday you're going up against LeBron James, Barack Obama, Aaron Donald, Megan Rapinoe, and Bryant Gumbel — but if the gymnasts featured in our series have taught us anything it's that fierce confidence can conquer all! (Not that this is a competition...)

The winner will be announced Saturday, March 20, during a virtual expansion on the guild's annual pre-awards nominees breakfast event, "A Day with the PGA Awards Nominees."
