A debut teaser for TV’s Broadway series “Fosse/Verdon”, following the lives of director and stage choreographer Bob Fosse and talented dancer Gwen Verdon, arrived after co-star Sam Rockwell appeared on the Golden Globes stage.

“Fosse/Verdon” tells the story of the romantic pairing of Bob Fosse (Sam Rockwell) and Gwen Verdon (fellow Golden Globe winner Michelle Williams).

Verdon was considered among the best of Broadway’s actresses and dancers, particularly for a quartet of Tony Award-winning performances in the 1950s.

FEATURED STORIES

Fosse, the choreographer and director, to this day holds the most Tonys for choreography, eight, with plenty of overlap between the pair’s accolades.

Beginning in April 2019, FX’s eight-part series “Fosse/Verdon” is to lead viewers through a rendition of the couple’s work, both on and off-stage, in a new show from “Masters of Sex” showrunner Steven Levenson.

The series is based on Sam Wasson’s biography “Fosse”.

On-screen support comes from Kelli Barrett of “The Punisher” as actress Liza Minnelli, Nate Corddry of “Mindhunter” as playwright Neil Simon, Norbert Leo Butz of “Bloodline” as playwright Paddy Chayefsky, and Evan Handler as producer Hal Prince, as well as Margaret Qualley (“The Leftovers”), Aya Cash (“You’re The Worst”), Byron Jennings (“The Greatest Showman”), Susan Misner (“Chicago”) and more.
