Be Good Johnny Weir
"Figure skating, with its scandalous costumes, death-defying jumps and cut-throat atmosphere meets its match in Johnny Weir. The three-time US Champion, 2006 Olympian and 2008 World Bronze Medalist has officially become skating’s most controversial and talented personality. This documentary series follows Johnny on a rollercoaster ride as he seeks to become the 2010 Olympic Champion. It is the story of a young athlete on a mission to capture the gold while staying true to his outspoken personality and unique artistry. The stories threaded throughout the eight-episode series are anchored by Johnny’s quest for gold at the Vancouver Olympics: His contentious relationship with US Figure Skating, his love affair with Russia, his friendship with Paris, his marriage of artistry and athleticism, his internal struggle with discipline, his battle with arch-rival Evan Lysacek and his crusade to tame the elusive quad. These storylines evolve and grow deeper over the time we spend with Johnny."
