Premiering on June 27, streaming service Peacock will debut an original six-part docuseries titled Golden: The Journey of USA's Elite Gymnasts, which follows Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez, Morgan Hurd, Sunisa Lee, Konnor McClain, and MyKayla Skinner as they compete for a Team USA spot at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. As the series follows these Tokyo Olympics hopefuls, commentary from elite gymnastics industry experts and athletes is interwoven with behind-the-scenes footage of the gymnasts training, competitions, and more. "You'll see the levels of anxiety, the level of pressure, the physical tolls that it takes," three-time Olympian and executive producer of Golden: The Journey of USA's Elite Gymnasts Dominique Dawes said to POPSUGAR.
Knowing that this "eye-opening" project would be something that "fans would embrace," Dawes, aka Awesome Dawesome, was "completely on board" to become the executive producer for the docuseries after production company Uninterrupted's cofounder LeBron James approached her about producing this series. As she said, "Everything he touches becomes golden."
