more: Ballet Drama 'Flesh and Bone' Ordered to Series at Starz - Hollywood Reporter
"Black Swan's" Sarah Hay leads a cast of world-renowned dancers in the drama from "Breaking Bad's" Moira Walley-Beckett.
Starz is adding a female-skewing drama to its roster.
The premium cable network has cast Black Swan's Sarah Hay to star in Flesh and Bone and picked up the ballet drama from Breaking Bad alum Moira Walley-Beckett to series, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The drama centers on Claire (Hay), who has a distinctly troubled past, as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. The dark and gritty series will unflinchingly explore the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world. Hay's Claire is further described as a beautiful, soulful and deeply emotionally wounded young woman who possesses an innate innocence and fragility while at the same time harboring self-destructive tendencies and a vaulting ambition. She is a transcendent ballerina, capable of reaching the sublime, but her inner torment and aspirations drive her in compelling, unforeseeable ways.
This one seems made for you, Critical! I love to watch ballet, so I'm looking forward to it! This was cast not with an actress who can dance a little, but with a dancer who can act!
