Sky Max and streaming service NOW have confirmed that a brand-new Sky Original series of A League of Their Own Road Trip will hit screens on Tuesday 21 May and this time, the gang are in exhilarating Mexico!

Returning for what will be its eighth season, with episodes set to drop weekly, audiences will hit the road with team captains Jamie Redknapp and Jill Scott, alongside Micah Richards, Mo Gilligan and Maisie Adam, as they explore what Mexico has to offer, as well as take on a number of epic and fun sporting challenges along the way.

Set to be a thrill-ride across the country, the cast will gamely take on activities and challenges – with hilarious results – including joining the world-famous Day of the Dead parade, shooting penalties in front of sixty thousand passionate football fans at CD Guadalajara, fighting fair at a unique Lucha Libre wrestling event, scuba-diving with sea lions, and much, much more.

When the results are finally in, audiences will see the ‘loser’ take part in a terrifying forfeit – a giant bungee swing across the desert canyon.

A League of Their Own: Mexican Road Trip was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content for Sky UK and Ireland and Phil Edgar-Jones, Director, Sky Arts and Entertainment. The Commissioning Editor for Sky UK is Barbara Lee and the Executive Producers for CPL Productions, a Seven.One Studios company, are Murray Boland, Danielle Lux and David Taylor.
