Jenna Dewan Tatum to Star in Fox’s ‘Mixtape’ Pilot

“World of Dance” host to lead drama from “Quantico” creator Joshua Safran

Jenna Dewan Tatum has been cast as the lead in the Fox musical drama pilot “Mixtape,” from “Quantico” creator Joshua Safran.

“Mixtape” hails from Fox and Sue Naegle’s Annapurna Television, and is described as “a romantic musical drama that looks at a disparate group of interconnected people in contemporary Los Angeles through the lens of the music that defines who they are, [capturing] the different stages of love, exploring if time can heal a broken heart and if love can withstand life’s tragedies.”

Dewan Tatum will star as Joanna, a young professional with everything always under control. She’s the most rational person she knows. And yet she’s a little guarded, as if always prepared for the worst.

She joins a cast that already includes “Revenge” alum Madeline Stowe and “La La Land” actress Callie Hernandez.

Safran, whose credits also includes the NBC musical drama “Smash,” is writer and executive producer on the hourlong drama. Ali Krug is co-executive producer and Annapurna bosses Naegle and Megan Ellison are executive producers.
