Breaking Bad executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett is hoping to keep everyone on their toes with her new ballet drama.
Starz announced on Wednesday that Flesh and Bone—an eight-hour limited series created by the woman who wrote Bad‘s beloved episode “Ozymandias” —will debut Nov. 8.
The show centers on a Claire (Black Swan‘s Sarah Hay), an emotionally troubled but gifted young dancer who tries to navigate the politics and drama of the world of ballet when she joins a highly regarded New York City company. She will have to face down its capricious artistic director (House of Cards‘ Ben Daniels) and someone problematic from her past.
The cast of Flesh and Bone also features Josh Helman (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Damon Herriman (Justified), Tina Benko (The Good Wife) and Tovah Feldshuh (The Walking Dead). The show will use more than 20 professional ballet dancers as actors, including former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Irina Dvorovenko, former American Ballet Theatre soloist Sascha Radetsky, Ballet Arizona company dancer Raychel Diane Weiner and Boardwalk Empire‘s Emily Tyra.
