After 5 years in development, "Reality Roller Derby" premieres with 52 weeks of hot roller derby action. Thanks to the new start-up Internet sports channel, Global TV Network, "Reality Roller Derby" will be available 24/7 with a click of the mouse at http://www.BayCityBombers.com.

After thousands of encouraging emails from today's youth culture interested in roller derby, the American Roller Derby League(r) is utilizing the Internet to reach millions. Bypassing traditional network and cable TV's control over sex and violence, brand owner Tim Patten partnered with Australia's Global TV Network to create weekly cyber-TV-programs. "The Internet is unhindered by the creative trappings of network television, and it gives millions of people across the globe easy access to experience roller derby and skate entertainment; entirely free," Patten said.

The 52 TV shows include rock fueled roller girl bouts, 16mm and 8mm retro-archived footage, newsreels along with historical artifacts such as a rare roller derby radio broadcast from 1938.

"The 1935 documentary on roller derby's Depression era beginnings comes across as fresh as any new TV series today. There's something for everyone from age 1 to 100," Patten said. "We have roller derby bloopers, out takes, comedy, speed skating, flat track, banked track derby and "rollerjam" mayhem from San Francisco, Texas, Australia, Japan and around the world. And don't forget the catfights. Viewers will go inside a training camp and witness contestants in try-outs. We're especially proud of our poignant docudramas that feature some of the greatest derby divas and athletes of all time."

At times funny, wild, and dramatic, "Reality Roller Derby" weekly TV shows will air starting Saturday, November 4th, free, around the globe, and without commercials at http://www.BayCityBombers.com.
