Starz released the first trailer for the ballet drama “Flesh and Bone” on Tuesday.

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

In the trailer, Claire arrives at the American Ballet Company, where she will study under the strict tutelage of company leader Paul (Ben Daniels). But Claire must fight to escape her past just as she must fight to gain acceptance in the incredibly exclusive dance troupe.

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

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.

Starz “Flesh and Bone” will premiere on November 8.
