Hoop Girls is a female fronted, inspiring and refreshing portrayal of women on the screen.

The Hoop Girls aren't limited to any one group of characters, but rather the series captures different anecdotes of women and their hoops; women living their life through all walks of life, succeeding, failing, growing, dreaming. The first episode that has been released online is 'Chapter 1: I Am the Hoop, Hear Me Roar.' It introduces the entire series with four actresses (Brenda Covarrubias, Jeanette Godoy, Regina Gomez, Marissa Herrera) speaking on the connection to the circular shape in our world, our universe. The earth, the sun, clocks, compasses, and of course, hoops. The characters command for their voices to be heard, like a loud roar in the city of Los Angeles.
Hoop Girls is created, written and directed by the writer of the original stage play that it is based on, Gabriela López de Dennis (pictured) (Overcomers, Fixing Paco, B.O.O.S.T., Edith & Harvey; Los Angeles), who says, "This has always been my love letter to women and their larger-than-life hoops, with the aim to inspire in particular young girls by seeing these strong female characters on film."
Hoop Girls - Chapter 1: I Am the Hoop, Hear Me Roar stars Jeanette Godoy, an actress and costume designer who is also seen in the comedy digital series #HighlandPark and who costumed the film Whittier Boulevard; Regina Gomez, an actress, writer, director and Jiu Jitsu practitioner who is also seen in #HighlandPark; Marissa Herrera an actress, writer and dancer who is currently choreographing In the Heights at the Pasadena City College; Brenda Covarrubias an actress and owner of the jewelry shop Chicstera of which jewelry pieces were seen in this episode.
Hoop Girls is produced by Los Angeles-based and award-winning content creators Lone Stars Entertainment, founded by filmmakers Gabriela López de Dennis & Jeremiah Ocañas (#HighlandPark, B.O.O.S.T., Overcomers; El Campo, TX). Director of Photography is Raul Leal (#HighlandPark, B.O.O.S.T., Overcomers; Houston, TX).
