Bunheads is the latest series from Gilmore Girls mastermind Amy Sherman-Palladino (also known as ASP for short). A former ballerina and Broadway chorus girl, Michelle (Foster; Flight of the Concords) , is currently stuck in Vegas as a showgirl and life is going nowhere fast. She’s constantly pursued by a man who visits her every time he is town (Ruck; Ferris Bueller’s Day Off). After a particularly bad audition she agrees to go out with him and after a few martinis winds up married and moving to the small town of Paradise with him the next day. She soon discovers the town of Paradise is a pretty sleepy town where everyone knows everything about each other and there’s very little to do. But her new mother in law (Bishop; Gilmore Girls) is also a former ballerina who runs a studio in the back of the house. Here she teaches some promising girls dancing and life lessons.
