The Simone Biles story premiered on Lifetime this past weekend, and was a TV ratings winner.

The Simone Biles Story: Courage To Soar, was the most watched cable television broadcasts Saturday night for its time slot.  The Lifetime original movie drew in an impressive 1.8 million viewers.

Based on her book, “Courage to Soar: A Body in Motion, A Life in Balance,” “The Simone Biles Story: Courage to Soar” follows Simone Biles (played by actress Jeanté Godlock) through the sacrifices and hard work that led her to win 19 Olympic and World Championship medals and ultimately cemented her stake as one of the greatest gymnasts of all time.

The movie also starred Tisha Campbell- Martin, and Julius Tennon, as Ron and Nellie Biles, as the parents of Simone Biles.
