Flesh and Bone
After a long career as an acclaimed dancer, Paul Grayson founded the American Ballet Company, and he's determined to make it rank among the world's best artistic institutions. The key, he believes, is Claire Robbins, a transcendent ballerina, capable of reaching the sublime, but her inner torment and aspirations drive her in compelling, unforeseeable ways, especially when confronted with Paul's ping-pong fits of ebullience and rage. ABC's mercurial leader requires his dancers' abject devotion... to an extremely unhealthy degree. Infused by New York's inherent drama, "Flesh and Bone" is a gritty, complex series that steadfastly explores the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world.
