BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Starz says it is developing a new, as-yet-untitled drama series about a troubled woman who joins a prestigious New York ballet company.

"The dark and gritty series will unflinchingly explore the dysfunctional underbelly of the ballet world," Starz said in a news release.

The cable network is working on the show with "Breaking Bad" co-executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett and Lawrence Bender whose producing credits include "Inglourious Basterds," "Pulp Fiction" and "Good Will Hunting."

Bender and Walley-Beckett are former ballet dancers. Producer Kevin Brown's family also includes numerous former ballet dancers who were the basis for the Oscar-nominated film, "The Turning Point," Starz said.
