If you are eagerly awaiting the November 8 premiere of Starz’s gritty ballet drama “Flesh and Bone,” you’re in luck. The network released its first trailer of the eight-hour limited series yesterday—and it looks pretty tantalizing. The show includes an impressive cast of professional dancers, including Dresden Semperoper Ballet soloist Sarah Hay, former American Ballet Theatre dancers Irina Dvorovenko and Sascha Radetsky, Raychel Diane Weiner (formerly of Ballet Arizona), as well as “House of Cards” star Ben Daniels as the tyrannical artistic director (get ready for a chair-smashing temper tantrum). According to multiple Starz press releases, the show’s main character Claire, played by Hay, has a “distinctly troubled past”—and the trailer offers a few clues as to what that past might entail. You may also catch a glimpse of Ethan Stiefel’s choreography—the former Royal New Zealand Ballet director and ABT principal created a 13-minute original ballet for the show.
