Starz Sets Premiere Date for Limited Dance Drama ‘Flesh and Bone’

Starz has set a Nov. 8 premiere date for its limited series “Flesh and Bone,” hailing from “Breaking Bad” writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett.

The dark drama follows a young dancer with a troubled past, Claire (played by Sarah Hay, “Black Swan”), who joins a prestigious New York ballet company. The series explores NYC through the ballerina’s eyes, as she navigates the dysfunctional yet glamorous world of ballet. Claire’s self-destructive and ambitious nature drive her in unforeseeable ways, especially when she is confronted by the company’s artistic director (played by Ben Daniels, “House of Cards”) and an unwelcome visitor from her past.

Alongside Hay, the cast is made up of 22 ballet dancers, including former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Irina Dvorovenko, former American Ballet Theatre soloist Sascha Radetsky, Ballet Arizona company dancer Raychel Diane Weiner and Emily Tyra (“Boardwalk Empire”). 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”).

Former artistic director of the Royal New Zealand Ballet and a former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer, Ethan Stiefel, served as a consultant and choreographer on the project.

The limited series, which was shot in New York City, was created by Walley-Beckett, and is exec produced by John Melfi (“House of Cards,” “Sex and the City”), Lawrence Bender (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Pulp Fiction, “Good Will Hunting) and Kevin Brown (“Roswell”).  Australian filmmaker David Michôd directed the first episode.

The cabler also released the first look art for “Flesh and Bone” on Thursday.

    The crux of “Whiskey Cavalier” can be found right in its protagonist’s name. “Will Chase” is a purposefully ridiculous wink of a name that tries to be both debonair and very silly all at once, just like the FBI agent (played by Scott Foley) to which it belongs. This isn’t a regular spy drama, “Whiskey [...]
