FX has set a date for the premiere of its new, theatre-centric limited series, Fosse/Verdon. The Sam Rockwell- and Michelle Williams-led show will premiere April 9 on the network.

Rockwell and Michelle—both Broadway alums themselves—play the iconic choreographer and dancer, who collaborated onstage with such shows as Sweet Charity, Damn Yankees, and Chicago and were also frequently a pair offstage as well.

Myriad theatre vets are set to play notable Broadway figures as well, including Kelli Barrett as Liza Minnelli, Bianca Marroquin as Chita Rivera, Norbert Leo Butz as Paddy Chayefsky, Ethan Slater as Joel Grey, and Laura Osnes as Shirley MacLaine.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an executive producer on the series, along with Thomas Kail (who directs the pilot), Dear Evan Hansen scribe Steven Levenson (who wrote the pilot and serves as showrunner), Fosse and Verdon’s daughter Nicole Fosse, George Stelzner, and Joel Fields. Andy Blankenbuehler serves as choreographer on the series with Broadway alum Susan Misner, with Alex Lacamoire as supervising music producer.
