HBO Laces up Trailer for 'United Skates' Documentary

HBO Thursday released the first video for its upcoming documentary series United Skates, which delves into the world of roller skating.  

The documentary, executive produced by music star John Legend, 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, according to HBO.

United Skates premieres Feb. 18 on HBO.
