Golden: The Journey of USA's Elite Gymnasts is Streaming on Peacock June 27: pck.tv/3pmsJjO
Synopsis: The Peacock original series will take fans behind the scenes as Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez, Morgan Hurd, Sunisa Lee, Konnor McClain, and MyKayla Skinner compete for the four coveted Team USA roster spots. The first three episodes of the series premiere on June 27, with new episodes dropping weekly on July 7, July 14, and July 21.
Months before Sunisa Lee was crowned the 2020 Olympics Individual All-Around Champion in women’s gymnastics, the 18-year-old was being trailed by cameras as part of a Peacock Original series titled Golden: The Journey of USA’s Elite Gymnasts.
The series premiered in June, but has received renewed interest in recent days following Lee’s stunning gold medal win at the Tokyo Olympics. The Minnesota native made history as the first Hmong American gymnast to compete at an Olympic Games, which she then followed up by becoming the first Asian-American to take home the prestigious All-Around gymnastics title.
Golden takes viewers behind the scenes as top gymnasts compete for a spot on Team USA. In addition to Lee, the docuseries follows Rio gold medalist Laurie Hernandez, 2017 World All-Around Champion Morgan Hurd, 2020 Olympian MyKayla Skinner, and first-year senior gymnast Konnor McClain. The series followed the gymnasts over a five-month period leading up to the U.S. Championships and the Olympic Trials, which were held in late June.
