NASHVILLE – July 11, 2019 – CMT’s most popular and longest running series, “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team,” returns with more action, tears and drama than ever before on Friday, August 2 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Immediately following is the premiere of CMT’s newest original series, “Racing Wives” – an exclusive inside look at the exciting and demanding lifestyles of professional racing’s first ladies, beginning at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT.
Fresh off its highest-rated season to date, “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team” kicks off with unprecedented access into the cheerleading candidates’ lives, as the hopeful young ladies fight for a coveted spot on the most technically-advanced team yet. Now working with such world class choreographers as Travis Wall and Tyce Diorio (“So You Thank You Can Dance”), and choreographer to the stars Charm La’donna (Kendrick Lamar, Meghan Trainor, Britney Spears and more), the Training Camp Candidates must learn and perfect new choreography every episode.
The star-wattage continues this season as “Dancing With The Stars” icons Cheryl Burke and Melissa Rycroft help judge auditions to select the best of the best. DCC’s grand dames, Kelli Finglass and Judy Trammell, return to oversee the intense summer of non-stop competition and to handpick a chosen few to receive the ultimate title of “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader.” This season of “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team” consists of 13, one-hour episodes and is produced by Triage Entertainment with Executive Producers Stu Schreiberg, Stephen Kroopnick, Eugene Pack, Peter Zasuly, Charlotte Jones Anderson and Kelli McGonagill Finglass.

Just a stone’s throw away from the high-octane tracks where racing legends rise and fall, “Racing Wives” is the first docu-series to go inside the personal and professional lives of some of racing’s most prominent wives, as they support their husbands, friends, and each other, both on and off the raceway.
The cast features sisters-in law Samantha and Ashley Busch, married to elite NASCAR drivers Kyle and Kurt Busch; Amber Balcean, an ambitious, young driver from Canada, who is determined to break the glass ceiling and secure a spot on the Kyle Busch Motorsports team; Whitney Ward Dillon, former Tennessee Titans cheerleader and wife of NASCAR’s Austin Dillon, who tries to juggle the demands of her new role as Austin’s wife while staying true to her best friend and fellow cheerleader, ride-or-die, Mariel Lane. “Racing Wives” consists of eight, one-hour episodes and is produced by Critical Content with Executive Producers Jenny Daly, Rob Lobl, Ben DeNoble, Paul Moore and Asabi Lee.
