DESCRIPTION:
(from FX's press release, November 2018) FX today announced the additional cast that will appear in Fosse/Verdon, an eight episode limited series from award-winning producers Thomas Kail, Steven Levenson, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Joel Fields. Production on the series, now officially titled Fosse/Verdon, is currently underway in New York City ahead of its premiere on FX in Spring 2019. Joining Academy Award(R) winner Sam Rockwell and four-time Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams in the highly-anticipated series are series regulars Norbert Leo Butz as PADDY CHAYEFSKY and Margaret Qualley as ANN REINKING. Additional recurring cast members include: Aya Cash as JOAN SIMON; Nate Corddry as NEIL SIMON; Susan Misner as JOAN MCCRACKEN; Bianca Marroquin as CHITA RIVERA; Kelli Barrett as LIZA MINNELLI; Evan Handler as HAL PRINCE; Rick Holmes as FRED WEAVER; Paul Reiser as CY FEUER.

Based on Fosse, the biography written by Sam Wasson, this eight-part limited series tells the story of the singular romantic and creative partnership between Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. He was a visionary filmmaker and one of theater's most influential choreographers and directors. She was the greatest Broadway dancer of all time. Together they changed the face of American entertainment - at a perilous cost. Featuring Fosse's choreography, the series explores the hidden corners of show business, the price of pursuing greatness, and the suffering inflicted in the name of art.
