According to Variety, HBO has green-lighted a new skateboarding comedy based on Crystal Moselle’s 2018 indie film Skate Kitchen.

The six-episode series called Betty will feature the OG movie cast (sans Jaden Smith) — Rachelle Vinberg, Nina Moran, Moonbear, Dede Lovelace and Ajani Russell — as well as Moselle in the director’s chair.

Based on a real-life all-female skateboarding crew from New York City, the show will follow the young women through the male-dominated world of skateboarding.

While a premiere date for Betty has not been determined, HBO is ready to shred.
