David Michôd Directing Flesh & Bone Pilot
A new series from Breaking Bad's Moira Walley-Beckett

David-Michod-Directing-Flesh-And-Bone-Pilot

We’re set to see the latest cinematic offering from Animal Kingdom director David Michôd, The Rover, this year. Indeed, the teaser trailer arrived last month. But he also has experience calling the shots on TV, and he’s set to bring his particular skillset to Flesh And Bone, a new series set in the competitive world of professional ballet created by Breaking Bad writer-producer Moira Walley-Beckett.

The writer, who was responsible for some of the best Breaking Bad scripts (including last year’s superb Ozymandias), has been hired by Starz to create the new show. Flesh And Bone will follow young dancer Claire (played by real life performer Sarah Hay) who is dealing with her troubled past even as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. Think Black Swan on the small screen, as the dark drama explores the glamour and dysfunction behind the stage performances.

“I’m entirely enamoured of the visual, visceral, artful way David tells story,” Walley-Beckett says in a statement picked up by Deadline. “His style and sensibility is very much in alignment with my vision of my show.”

Given its position on the Starz network – home to the likes of Spartacus, Da Vinci’s Demons and Black Sails – expect violence. And probably nudity. But with Walley-Beckett in charge, we can also hope for something beyond the channel’s usual offerings.
