Roller Warriors TV series premieres tonight

I’m really looking forward to Metro Sports’ documentary series on the tough skating and fighting chicks in the Kansas City Roller Warriors. The series debuts tonight at 9, replays at 9:30 and airs Thursday nights at 9:30 for seven weeks. Roller Warriors recalls the 2008 season (the 2009 gets rolling next weekend).

Last month, I talked with Charlie Parker, the producer of the series, who told me he went into the project knowing nothing about roller derby

or the women who skate and bleed.
