Mary J. Blige is producing ‘8 Count’ Fox music drama inspired by Hollywood choreographer Laurieann Gibson.
According to Deadline, Mary J. 8 Count is a music-fueled drama that follows a young choreographer who, in order to redeem her damaged reputation in the cutthroat music/dance world, must invest in an up-and-coming singer, who also has one last shot at stardom.
Gibson has choreographed music videos and live performances for Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, among many others. Her on-screen credits include Making the Band, So You Think You Can Dance, Dance Moms and Starmaker. She is repped by APA.
