The new dance drama was developed by Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and is set to premiere on June 11th @ 9PM ET/PT.
Bunheads is about a Las Vegas showgirl (Sutton Foster) who impulsively marries a man and moves to his sleepy coastal town, and takes on an uneasy role at her new mother-in-law’s dance school.
“I spent 20 years of my life with my hair in a bun,” Amy says. “I was supposed to be a dancer. My mother was a dancer. So, while writing this will never equal playing Rumpelteazer in a bus and truck tour of Cats, it does let me to tip my hat to a really special time in my life.”
JJJ Fun fact: Bunheads was originally picked up as a cast-contingent pilot in fall 2010 with a different writer.
