Misty Copeland is coming to the small screen.
The ballet superstar has teamed with rising writer Tracy Oliver for a drama set in the world of dance. The untitled project, which has been set up at Fox through 20th Century Fox TV, follows a young, hip and diverse group of aspiring dancers as they fiercely compete for places in a top ballet company.
For those of you who don’t know Tracy Oliver, she first got noticed with The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl web series, which she co-wrote and executive produced, was a writer on ABC comedy Neighbors and recently staffed on Starz’s Survivor’s Remorse for the first two seasons. She has also landed two features- Barbershop 3 and an untitled Girls’ Trip movie at Universal, which she is co-writing. #YouGoGirl
