FX Orders Fosse Series Starring Sam Rockwell & Michelle Williams

  • FX has ordered a limited series about the lives of choreographer Bob Fosse and dancer Gwen Verdon.

  • Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams are set to star in this eight part series, based on the biography Fosse by Sam Wasson.

  • Lin-Manuel Miranda and Thomas Kail (Hamilton) will executive produce alongside Rockwell, Williams, George Stelzner and Steven Levenson. Verdon and Fosse's daughter Nicole will co-exec produce.

  • Levenson will serve as the show-runner, with production scheduled to start this fall for a 2019 premiere.

  • Plot summary: The story of the romantic and creative partnership between two of theater's greatest entertainers will explore the hidden aspects of show business and the price of pursuing greatness.


I don't know much about either of these people, but with FX's track record for limited series lately, I'm interested!
