Keeping Score trailer: Hope Solo to star in documentary series
- TV Show
Between them, U.S. women’s soccer stars Hope Solo, Megan Rapinoe, and Crystal Dunn have amassed several Olympic medals and multiple worldwide championships. Now, they’ve scored starring roles in their very own docuseries, Keeping Score, and EW has an exclusive first look at the first trailer for the upcoming project.
The new sports program (Fullscreen‘s first) revolves around the trio’s preparation for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as they turn the cameras on themselves, chronicling rigorous training, bouts with personal injuries, and their ongoing battle for equality amid the male-dominated sports industry. Premiering three months before the nation heads to the polls with the option to elect the first female president in U.S. history, Keeping Score actively engages with the hot button issue of gender-based wage gaps in America.
“I’m labeled a certain way and judged a certain way, and that’s never going to change,” Solo says in the trailer. “We actually get paid 75 percent less than the men.”
Rapinoe adds: “To make our argument for equal pay, winning the Olympics would be massive.”
Additionally, Keeping Score will also focus on issues of race, as Dunn notes she’s “one of the few black women playing soccer.”
Keeping Score premieres Aug. 3 exclusively on Fullscreen. Viewers can watch it — and other original titles on the streaming service — on demand for $4.99 per month. Check out the series’ first trailer in the video above.
