UNITED SKATES, directed and produced by Dyana Winkler and Tina Brown, and winner of the Documentary Audience Award at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival has been acquired by HBO and will debut on the network in 2019.   John Legend is an executive producer of the documentary feature.

As America’s last standing roller rinks are threatened with closure, UNITED SKATES spotlights a community of thousands who fight in a racially charged environment to save the underground African-American subculture of roller skating, which has been overlooked by the mainstream for generations, while giving rise to great musical talents.

The documentary will screen this fall in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and London, among other locations, supported by a robust outreach campaign.
