image002It may not premiere until November 8 but after seeing the first trailer for the new limited series, Flesh and Bone, I kinda want this Starz show on the air NOW!

Coming from creator/Emmy winner Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad), here is the press release from Starz on the exciting new series:

Flesh and Bone follows a young dancer with a distinctly troubled past as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. The dark, gritty, complex series unflinchingly explores New York City through the eyes of Claire, played by Sarah Hay (Black Swan), an emotionally wounded but transcendent ballerina navigating the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world. Claire’s self-destructive tendencies amid her vaulting ambitions drive her in compelling, unforeseeable ways, especially when she is confronted with the machinations of the company’s mercurial Artistic Director, played by Ben Daniels (House of CardsLaw & Order UK) and an unwelcome visitor from her past.

Besides Walley-Beckett. who also serves as Executive Producer, John Melfi (House of Cards, Sex and the City), Lawrence Bender (Inglourious Basterds, Pulp Fiction and Good Will Hunting) and Kevin Brown (Roswell) are Executive Producers. Australian filmmaker David Michôd (Animal Kingdom, Rover) directed the first episode.

To ensure authenticity, the Executive Producers cast a company of 22 accomplished ballet dancers including former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Irina Dvorovenko (Kiira), former American Ballet Theatre soloist Sascha Radetsky (Ross), Ballet Arizona company dancer Raychel Diane Weiner (Daphne) and Emily Tyra (Mia) from “Boardwalk Empire.” Ethan Stiefel, former artistic director of the Royal New Zealand Ballet and a former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer, served as consultant and choreographer. He created a 13-minute original ballet for “Flesh and Bone.” Other cast members include Josh Helman (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”), Damon Herriman (“Justified”), Tina Benko (“The Good Wife”) and Tovah Feldshuh (“The Walking Dead”).

The production was shot entirely in New York City, using soundstages at Steiner Studios, Kaufman Astoria Studios and locations around the city. Take a look at the trailer here:
