Plot Synopsis

BE GOOD JOHNNY WEIR is a reality show that follows three-time U.S. National Figure Skating Champion and World Medalist Johnny Weir, one of America's most outspoken and colorful sports figures, as he navigates sports and life. Bright, quick-witted and extroverted, Weir is as comfortable walking in a downtown New York fashion show as he is on the ice, and he is known for giving candid, irreverent, responses at press events. Even though he was heavily favored going into the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics, he finished a disappointing fifth, teaching him that talent alone does not make a champion. Season 1 followed Weir as he competed all over the globe, culminating in his appearance at the U.S. Men's Nationals in January, where he knew he must dig deep if he was to secure what may be his last chance at a place on a U.S. Olympic team. It is here that Weir learned whether or not he will be able to fulfill his dream of Olympic glory and gold in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. For Season 2, the series switched networks to Logo, and went deeper into Johnny's work and personal life as he balanced his immense drive for the ultimate prize in the skating world with his growing ambition to branch out into various entertainment endeavors. Johnny makes a foray into the music business with his first single, publishes a book, dabbles in a fashion line and works to launch his own ice show spectacular.
