FX has announced a new project from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and the musical’s director Thomas Kail. The pair also worked together on Miranda’s previous show, In The Heights. Miranda will executive produce, alongside Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex) and George Stelzner, while Kail will direct.
The new series, Fosse/Verdon, is like Hamilton derived from a biography – this time Sam Wasson’s book about the hugely influential choreographer, dancer and director Bob Fosse, who much like Miranda revolutionised the musical field with his work on the likes of Chicago and Cabaret. Oscar-winning actor Sam Rockwell will play Fosse, with Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) as his wife and collaborator Gwen Verdon.
What the industry says about US
TROS KOMPAS, MAGAZINE PUBLISHERS, NETHERLANDS
The Global Listings press schedules are very good. Especially as we have very little space in the TV Guide sections, these are still very useful to us. In addition, the Global Listings TV highlights documents and press reports are also a great way for us to make choices of what TV programmes to feature.

It has been fantastic working with Global Listings. They have been helpful and responsive – they have provided all the information requested. As we were new to the market, we had lots of questions. They were able to smooth things out and help us where we needed it. The execution of our business relationship has been seamless.
