LAST AUGUST, the H.H. Unofficial Information Exchange (UIEX) tickertape was whirling around chasing its tail in a frenzy after getting a tip on Sarah Jessica Parker's new idea to produce a reality TV show based on NYCB.
Well, folks, once again, the UIEX is the first ballet news source to get to the market with the official word.
TODAY, AOL announced at its 2013 Digital Content NewFront event that in conjunction with its mandate to conquer online video content through its ON Network, it will develop 15 original unscripted shows one of which will be Sarah Jessica Parker's City.Ballet - "covering the cut-throat world of the New York City Ballet."
Man oh man, this is exciting. Tonight at the first performance of NYCB's fabulous spring season, Haglund will keep both eyes peeled for any of that cut-throat business that we just know is going on. Anyone who thinks hanging around the water cooler will get you an earful hasn't hung around the rosin box. Cut-throat through and through.
