As if the ballet world hasn't been portrayed as cruel and gruesome enough lately, here comes a new "dark and gritty TV series" about a ballet dancer with a troubled past who joins a New York company. The series is being developed by Starz and will be produced by Bender-Brown Productions. The Brown in Bender-Brown is Kevin Brown, brother of Ethan, Leslie, and Gabrielle Elizabeth*, and son of Kelly and Isabel -- all of whom danced at ABT. The Bender in Bender-Brown produced Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, An Inconvenient Truth, and most of the Tarantino films.
For sure, the producers have endless ideas about plot lines, but well, if they need any help, we're always here for them.
