(DailyWire) “Lady Ballers” marks the biggest launch in DailyWire+ history, according to Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing.
“Lady Ballers” is a feature length comedy lampooning transgender ideology and the leftist push to make room for men who identify as women in women’s sports. The Daily Wire premiered the movie on DailyWire+ on Friday night.
“Thank you to everyone who helped give Lady Ballers the biggest launch in @dailywireplus history,” Boreing posted on X on Saturday. “Best launch day for new subs. Best launch day for reviews (97% on Rotten Tomatoes). And the online buzz is off the charts.”

Less than 24 hours after the film was released on The Daily Wire’s platform, the movie racked up over 1,000 reviews on the movie review forum Rotten Tomatoes, earning a 97% approval rating.
“Lady Ballers” tells the story of a down-on-his-luck former high school basketball coach named Rob, played by Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing, who will do anything to win — in this case, teaching his team of men radical modern gender theory and leading them to identify as women in order to brutally dominate multiple women’s sports.
“We are thrilled about it,” Boreing told Dr. Gad Saad during an appearance on “The Saad Truth” podcast on Friday. “It’s truly a uniquely Daily Wire project. It stars all of the Daily Wire’s hosts. It was written by employees of the Daily Wire. It’s our most Daily Wire thing we’ve ever done.”
During the podcast, Boreing said The Daily Wire faced some additional adversity to making the movie because of the topic it addressed: transgender ideology.
“When we first made the film, we reached out to a lot of the actors who’ve asked to work with us in the past,” Boreing said. “Some of them are actors who have already been canceled and have said ‘we’ll do anything to work with the Daily Wire.’”
