And here it is… a biopic movie one surely does not want to miss. Lifetime has released a one-minute trailer for the biopic that’s set for a world premiere on Saturday evening, February 1. The trailer details the key figures in Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas’ life while growing up to become one of the world’s most talented gymnasts; while the story centers around the two-time medal winner’s struggle to get gold.

Playing a young Gabby Douglas is Sydney Mikayla with an older Gabby Douglas played by “Everybody Hates Chris” star Imani Hakim. “Southland” star Regina King takes on the role of her mother, while “Law & Order” star Epatha Merkerson plays the athlete’s grandmother. And not to leave out the coach behind Douglas’ success, Liang Chow will be played by Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift star Brian Tee.

According to Portage Daily Graphic, Hakim doesn’t have a gymnastics background, but she is athletic having studied ju-jitsu and competed in track and field, so when the casting call came out for dancers and gymnasts, it was her acting ability that gave her an edge.

“Everyone that I was up against had that one up against me. They were all gymnasts or really hardcore dancers and I was just an actress. So it felt really good to learn that I booked the part over all those people who actually had experience at that level.”
