A&E Network is getting into some reality TV steer wrestling and saddle-bronc riding. The network said today it has ordered a series from The Weinstein Company about female rodeo competitors. The series, which has the working title Rodeo Girls, was described last year at MIPCOM as “Ice Road Truckers meets Housewives.” A&E has put in an eight-episode order. “We are thrilled to be working with The Weinstein Company on Rodeo Girls. The women of the competitive barrel racing world are formidable athletes living sensational lives and we are excited for our viewers to go along for the wild ride,” said David McKillop, EVP Programming at A&E Network and BIO Channel, in a statement Friday. The series is executive produced by Meryl Poster, Barbara Schneeweiss, Roe Baker and Darcy Lapier for Weinstein and Stephen Land for Jupiter Entertainment. Executive producers for A&E are McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant, Lily Neumeyer and Devon Graham.
