The Daily Wire, co-founded by Jeremy Boreing, recently achieved a significant milestone with the release of “Lady Ballers,” heralded as their most ambitious project to date. The feature-length comedy, which made its debut on the streaming platform DailyWire+, has been touted as the biggest launch in the history of the media company.
“Lady Ballers” takes a satirical approach, targeting transgender ideology and the ongoing debate surrounding the inclusion of transgender women in women’s sports. With Jeremy Boreing in the lead role as a former high school basketball coach named Rob, the movie humorously explores the narrative of coaching a team of men to identify as women to gain dominance in female sports leagues.
The film’s immediate success was underscored by its record-breaking reception on various fronts. Within less than 24 hours of its release, it amassed over 1,000 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, boasting an impressive 97% approval rating. Boreing expressed his gratitude for the overwhelming support, highlighting the film’s stellar performance in attracting new subscriptions and garnering positive reviews.

During interviews with podcast hosts such as Dr. Gad Saad and Tim Pool, Boreing shed light on the challenges faced during the movie’s production. He revealed encountering difficulties in casting due to the contentious nature of the film’s subject matter, with even previously canceled actors expressing reluctance to participate. Boreing attributed this hesitance to the contentious nature of the topic, labeling it as a polarizing issue within contemporary societal discourse.
Moreover, Boreing disclosed the deliberate secrecy maintained around the project to avert potential sabotage from activists opposed to its premise. Employing pseudonyms and referring to the film as “Coach Miracle” during production, The Daily Wire aimed to shield the project from external interference.
Speaking on “The Saad Truth” podcast, Boreing emphasized the film’s distinctively Daily Wire essence, showcasing the active involvement of the media company’s hosts and staff in its creation. He highlighted the collective effort put forth by Daily Wire employees in writing and starring in the production, underscoring its alignment with the company’s ethos.
Despite its remarkable reception, “Lady Ballers” has not been without controversy, as its approach to the sensitive issue of transgender inclusion in sports has sparked fervent debate and drawn criticism from various quarters.
Hollywood won’t make a movie about how laughably absurd it is that we now allow grown men to call themselves women and then dominate women’s sports.
So we did.
Introducing our first feature-length comedy, ‘LADY BALLERS.’
