Over-the-top digital service Olympic Channel is slated to launch its first reality series.

Produced by millennial media company Vice Media, Synchro Sisters will chronicle the journeys of two rival synchronized swimming teams, offering an intimate look at the mental and physical preparations, precision and athleticism required to make the U.S. Olympic team.

The four-part docu-drama will follow the athletes and coaches of two esteemed California Bay Area rivals – the Aquamaids of Santa Clara California and the Aquanuts of Walnut Creek – in the weeks leading up to the National Team selection, while also revealing how their families and the game of “Bingo” play an important role in their success.

Synchro Sisters premieres worldwide on July 13 across the Olympic Channel digital platform and its mobile apps.
