The Toronto-shot indie feature, starring Ana Golja (Degrassi) and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance), will premiere on Sunday, Aug. 9 in NBC’s prized post-NFL slot.

Full Out will also air this fall on DHX’s Family Channel, a DHX spokesperson confirmed to Playback Daily.

The film, based on a true story, is the fourth feature from Toronto-based filmmaker Sean Cisterna (King of the Camp, 30 Ghosts). Jay Deverett serves as producer, with Jeff Deverett as executive producer.

After surviving a near-fatal car crash, Olympic gymnastics hopeful Ariana Berlin’s dreams of competing in Beijing 2008 are left in tatters. During her convalescence, Berlin discovers hip-hop dance and, once fully rehabilitated, she returns to compete in the NCAA championships.

Ariana Berlin features in the film as Golja’s stunt double, performing all the gymnastic routines.

Sarah Fisher, Trevor Tordjman, Genny Sermonia, Lamar Johnson, Courtney van Wirdum and Asha Bromfield star alongside Golja and Beals.
