STATUS: previously in development (2011-2012 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, April 2011) In dance, balance is essential. One wrong move and everything comes crashing down. Unfortunately, that goes for life too. Sarah Grace (Abigail Spencer) thought she left all that behind to become a high-profile lawyer. Now a twist of fate is about to bring her back home again. Dancers devote their lives to pursuing perfection and putting it all on the line. For years Sarah put that discipline and dedication into her career and marriage. But when everything starts falling apart, there's only one place left for Sarah to turn - to her wildly dysfunctional family and the world of dancing that she turned away from. At the center of that world is Sarah's eccentric father Michael (Eric Roberts), a brash and visionary dancer, whose passion becomes ours as we see his dance sequences come to life. But while he might be a creative genius, Michael's a lousy father. Fortunately, Sarah and her beautiful and talented multi-racial sisters - all from different mothers - are always there to help each other rise above. But when Michael's past comes back to haunt him just as Sarah's perfect world crumbles, it will take all of her legal brilliance and love for dancing to keep the family's dance studio afloat. It's no easy task, but Sarah is a fierce competitor and her new venture makes her feel more alive than she has in years. Dance takes center stage in this diverse family drama from executive producer and writer Krista Vernoff (Grey's Anatomy) and executive producer Carrie Ann Inaba (Dancing with the Stars). Go beyond the on stage glamour to discover the lives, dreams and passion of professional dancers.
