Written by Cassie Pappas (Tyrant), the period drama is set in 1942. While the men are away fighting during World War II, women in small-town Texas form the first All Girl Rodeo, riding to unprecedented fame and fortune — as long as they can hold on.

Soloway and Sperling executive produce via their Topple Productions banner, which is under an overall deal at Amazon Studios.

Soloway, creator, director and producer of Amazon’s critically praised series Transparent, has won two Primetime Emmys for Best Director for the series, as well as a DGA Award.

Pappas has written for such shows as Tyrant and Hostages and is penning the screenplay for MGM’s reboot of the 1980s cult classic Road House. She’s repped by ICM Partners and 3 Arts.
