Starz’s new original drama, “Flesh and Bone,” has cast  Ben Daniels (“House of Cards”) to star as the volatile and brilliant artistic director, Paul Grayson.

“Flesh and Bone” follows a young ballet dancer with a troubled past, played by “Black Swan’s” Sarah Hay, as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York City. The gritty drama will explore the dysfunction and glamor of the world of ballet.

The cast includes world-renowned dancers such as former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Irina Dvorovenko, current soloist Sascha Radetsky, Ballet Arizona company dancer Raychel Diane Weiner and Emily Tyra (“Boardwalk Empire”).

Production is scheduled to begin in New York City in spring and the series will debut in 2015.
