"Having leap-frogged two divisions from the part-time third tier into the newly-revamped league, West Ham United womenís team will now, for the first time, compete at the highest level of the sport, against some of the toughest teams in the world, read a BBC summary.

"Jackís first full-time job since leaving school at 16 will be overseeing a squad of 18 outspoken, powerful women, and trying to raise the profile of a growing sport often dismissed and derided by male fans.

"With exclusive access to the club, players and backroom staff, as well as to Jack and his larger-than-life family, this is a revealing and inspiring behind-the-scenes story of what it takes to be a professional female footballer in todayís game, and whether a loveable but inexperienced teenager can change the face of womenís football."

The series, which is a joint production between BBC Three and Curious Productions will begin airing next month on BBC3, with the first show set for broadcast on Wednesday, 5 December.
