Jennifer Beals to produce dance drama “The Edge”

Jennifer has teamed up with choreographer and director-producer Kenny Ortega  and James Larosa, creator of VH1’s cheerleading drama series Hit the Floor, for  “The Edge”, a dance drama in development at Fox.

Written and executive produced by Larosa, The Edge is set in the LA dance world, where it’s survival of the fittest. And no one is more fit than this ensemble of ambitious, sometimes ruthless women and men who have trained their whole lives to be the best and won’t let anything—or anyone—get in their way.

Jennifer, Kenny Ortega and James Larosa executive produce; there are no current plans for Jennifer to act. Annie Burgstede and Joanna Colbert co-executive produce. Sony Pictures TV is the studio.
