Photo Flash: Sutton Foster at Upfronts for ABC Family's BUNHEADS!
ABC Family has given the greenlight to the new drama series BUNHEADS, which s set to premiere on June 11. Executive-produced by Amy Sherman-Palladino ("Gilmore Girls") and headlined by Tony Award®-winning actor Sutton Foster, BUNHEADS is the tale of a Las Vegas showgirl who impulsively marries a man, moves to his sleepy coastal town, and takes an uneasy role at her new mother-in-law's dance school.
Foster recently attended upfronts with the rest of the ABC Family stars, and BroadwayWorld brings you photos of the Broadway favorite at the event below!
Kate Juergens, executive vice president, Original Programming and Development, ABC Family added, "Amy and I had a great collaboration on 'Gilmore Girls,' which continues to find new fans here on ABC Family, and I look forward to this new partnership being just as successful. Her vision for 'Bunheads' aligns beautifully with our brand and is a wonderful addition to ABC Family's original programming slate. I know our Millennial audience is going to fall in love with Sutton Foster the same way Broadway has."
Foster has received two Tony Awards, in 2002 for Thoroughly Modern Millie and in 2011 for Anything Goes. Her other Broadway credits include Little Women, The Drowsy Chaperone, Young Frankenstein and Shrek the Musical.
