DESCRIPTION: (from Starz's press release, April 2015) Starz today announced that "Flesh and Bone," the eight-hour limited series created by Emmy(R) award-winning "Breaking Bad" Writer and Executive Producer Moira Walley-Beckett, will premiere on Sunday November 8, 2015. "Flesh and Bone" follows a young dancer with a distinctly troubled past as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. The dark, gritty, complex series unflinchingly explores New York City through the eyes of Claire, played by Sarah Hay ("Black Swan"), an emotionally wounded but transcendent ballerina navigating the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world. Claire's self-destructive tendencies amid her vaulting ambitions drive her in compelling, unforeseeable ways, especially when she is confronted with the machinations of the company's mercurial Artistic Director, played by Ben Daniels ("House of Cards," "Law & Order UK") and an unwelcome visitor from her past.
