“Breaking Bad” writer and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett created the series

Starz ballet drama “Flesh and Bone” will premiere in November, Starz announced Thursday. The premium network also released the first poster for the series.

The eight-hour limited series was created by Emmy award-winning “Breaking Bad” writer and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett.

“Flesh and Bone” follows a young dancer with a troubled past as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. Claire, played by Sarah Hay (“Black Swan”), an emotionally wounded ballerina, must navigate the dysfunction and glamour of the ballet world.

Other cast members include Josh Helman (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”), Damon Herriman (“Justified”), Tina Benko (“The Good Wife”) and Tovah Feldshuh (“The Walking Dead”).

John Melfi (“House of Cards,” “Sex and the City”), Lawrence Bender (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Good Will Hunting”) and Kevin Brown (“Roswell”) are executive producers. Australian filmmaker David Michôd (“Animal Kingdom,” “Rover”) directed the first episode.

To ensure authenticity, producers cast a company of 22 accomplished ballet dancers to serve as consultants and choreographers.

“Flesh and Bone” will premiere on Sunday November 8, 2015.
