Fosse/Verdon (FX) -- limited series -- S: Sam Rockwell, Michelle Williams -- April



Bob Fosse is a visionary filmmaker and one of theater’s most influential choreographers and directors. Gwen Verdon is the greatest Broadway dancer of all time. Fosse/Verdon will tell the story of these two brilliant, complicated individuals – the love they shared, the art they created, and the price they paid in the pursuit of greatness.
The finger snaps, angled poses and glimpses of Weimar decadence come fast and furious in FX’s first teaser for Fosse/Verdon, the upcoming limited series about Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. Only one word is uttered: After the dancers have been put through the paces, Fosse, played by Sam Rockwell, orders “Again!”
Verdon is played by Michelle Williams.

Also in the cast: Norbert Leo Butz, Margaret Qualley, Aya Cash, Nate Corddry, Susan Misner, Bianca Marroquin, Kelli Barrett (as Liza Minnelli), Evan Handler, Rick Holmes and Paul Reiser. Ethan Slater, who recently starred as Broadway’s SpongeBob SquarePants, will play Joel Grey, with Byron Jennings as George Abbott and Laura Osnes as Shirley MacLaine.

Exec producing are Thomas Kail, Steven Levenson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Joel Fields, Miranda, Rockwell, Williams and George Stelzner, with Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions producing.  Levenson, who will serve as showrunner, wrote the premiere episode which will be directed by Kail.  Actress, dancer and producer Nicole Fosse, and daughter of Fosse and Verdon, serves as Co-Executive Producer and oversees The Verdon Fosse Legacy. Co-Producer Andy Blankenbuehler is serving as a Choreographer, as is Susan Misner. Erica Kay serves as Producer.

Coming in April.

Super excited for this. Hopefully it is half as good as something like All That Jazz.
