Los Angeles, July 13 /PRNewswire/



Professional cheerleading takes hard work, determination and nerves of steel as the new crop of recruits quickly finds out in the second season of CMT's Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team, premiering Friday, September 14 at 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT. CMT's eight-episode series reveals all the behind-the-scenes action of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleading try-outs as girls struggle to make the team, survive boot camp and make their big debut as one of the most famous cheerleaders in America.

"Becoming a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader is a lot of hard work and extremely competitive," says Kelli Finglass, director of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. "Most people don't understand the long hours of physical and mental conditioning that these girls go through to become one of just 36 chosen to make the team. This series shows you everything - the highs, the lows and everything in between."

Each summer, over one thousand hopefuls descend upon Texas Stadium with the same goal of becoming one of the few chosen to don the famous blue and white uniforms. Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team captures the contenders from preliminary auditions, through training camp and tearful cuts, where the cheerleading hopefuls must master the signature kick-line and intricate dance routines in order to advance. Finglass, Jay Johnson, the hardcore fitness instructor, and Judy Trammell, team choreographer, don't mince words as they test each individual for the physical and mental stamina required to make the team.

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team is produced by Triage Entertainment, with executive producers Kelli McGonagill Finglass, Stu Schreiberg, Stephen Kroopnick and Eugene Pack. Bob Kusbit and Melanie Moreau will serve as executive producers for CMT.
