When I first saw the poster for this new ABC Family show a couple weeks ago I got so excited for Sophie Flack, thinking her young adult novel of the same name had been made into a TV series. But as I read more about it, I realized the plot was completely different. Still, the series looks interesting. It follows the path of a ballet-trained Las Vegas showgirl who’s kind of returning to her origins. It’s written by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who studied ballet as a child and created the hit TV show Gilmore Girls. There’s lots of good info about it here. It premieres June 11.
I do think it would be awesome though if there were a TV series that followed pro ballet dancers in a New York-based company 🙂
