Featuring the glamorous lives of the NHL’s wives and girlfriends (also known as WAGs), the eight-part docu-series will give fans a never-before-seen look into how "the many challenges and crises all relationships face are amplified when lives are lived on the front page of the sports section."
“The wife is the captain off the ice,” says one WAG in the trailer, which also teases behind-the-scenes drama between the 10 women.
