This month marks the 20th anniversary of an icy showdown for the ages — the Olympic face-off between Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding after Harding’s then-husband hired a goon to take out Kerrigan’s knee in the weeks before the Lillehammer Games.

Flash to the present: As ladies’ singles figure skating competition kicks off at the Sochi Games, Logo TV is launching a cross-platform mini-series called “Ice Queens” to commemorate the “Whack Heard ‘Round the World” and to celebrate figure skating for all its high drama.
