To say that we're excited about "Fosse/Verdon" might be understating things a bit. The new limited series charting the romantic and creative partnership of Bob Fosse (played by Sam Rockwell) and Gwen Verdon (Michelle Williams) was announced last summer. And, with Bob and Gwen's daughter Nicole Fosse on board as co-executive producer and creative consultant, alongside most of the Hamilton dream team (with Andy Blankenbuehler on choreography), we've had high hopes for its verisimilitude.
FX finally released the first official trailer for the show today, and it was definitely worth the wait. It's packed with rehearsals and performances, press calls and private moments—not to mention heaps of drama and dancing. We won't even try to name all of the iconic numbers referenced in the two-minute trailer, but Fosse's idiosyncratic movement style is threaded throughout. ("Slouch. I don't think I've ever heard that word from a choreographer before," Verdon observes wryly.)
Is it April yet?
