"Douglas Family Gold"
Premieres Wednesday, May 25 at 10PM ET/PT on Oxygen
At 16, Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas stunned the world in 2012 by becoming the first African American in history to win the USA team and individual all-around gold medals at the Summer Olympics. Now 20, after a couple of years away from the sport, Gabby returns laser-focused, more confident and doesn’t just want to be on the medal podium in Rio, she wants gold. Behind her meteoric rise was a family willing to sacrifice everything to help her accomplish her dreams.
This time, as Gabby trains tirelessly in Ohio with her grandmother by her side, the rest of the family keeps busy juggling Gabby’s business and their own lives back in California. Her brother John is a standout athlete in track, while devoted sisters Arie and Joy are eager to blaze their own paths with “Momager” Natalie keeping this tight-knit family in-check. With Gabby's dogged determination and her family's unwavering support, this dream team proves that sometimes things are better the second time around.
In the premiere episode, “The First Hurdle,” Gabby is on a journey to defend her title at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Her close-knit family is her support team as she tries to conquer what no American gymnast has ever accomplished. The first hurdle is to make the National Team.
