‘The Americans’ Alum Joel Fields Joins FX’s Bob Fosse-Gwen Verdon Limited Series as Executive Producer

Joel Fields has joined the production team on FX’s limited series revolving around the creative partnership between stage legend Bob Fosse and dancer Gwen Verdon.

Fields is serving as an exec producer on the eight-part series along with Thomas Kail, Steven Levenson and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams are set to star.

Fields brings a showrunner’s sensibility to the team of Tony-winning legit heavyweights. He’s coming off the six-season run of FX’s “The Americans,” for which he and fellow showrunner Joe Weisberg won a writing Emmy last month.

“The chance to work with these extraordinary artists over the past months has been a gift,” said Fields. “It’s a story we’re all obsessed with as musical theater and film geeks (we can literally quote the source material from memory as it’s all in our hard-drives from childhood) and at the same time it’s as universal and moving and relevant today as ever.”

The untitled series is based on the 2013 Fosse biography penned by Sam Wasson. Kail, Levenson, Miranda, Rockwell, Williams, George Stelzner are also exec producers of the series. Levenson is showrunner and wrote the first episode, to be directed by Kail. Miranda and Kail are the powerhouse team behind the stage sensation “Hamilton.” Levenson penned the book for the Tony-winning tuner “Dear Evan Hansen.”
