Patrick Page, who starred this past Broadway season in A Time to Kill and Casa Valentina, has been cast in Starz's upcoming ballet drama Flesh and Bone.
The new series, from Breaking Bad writer and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett, follows a young ballet dancer (played by Sarah Hay) with a troubled past as she joins a prestigious ballet company in New York. Page will take on the role of Sergei Zelenkov, the powerful and mysterious proprietor of the Anastasia Club.
The cast of Flesh and Bone will also star Tony nominee Ben Daniels (Les Liaisons Dangereuses) as choreographer Paul Grayson, along with former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Irina Dvorovenko and current soloist Sascha Radetsky. The show also features Ballet Arizona company dancer Raychel Diane Weiner and Emily Tyra (Boardwalk Empire).
Walley-Beckett will write and executive-produce with Starz. Other executive producers are Lawrence Bender (Inglourious Basterds), Kevin Brown (Roswell), and John Melfi (Sex and the City). Ethan Stiefel, a former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer, is attached as choreographer. Flesh and Bone, which is currently being shot in New York City, will premiere in 2015.
