Misty Copeland—ESSENCE’s September cover star and the first Black Principal Ballerina at the American Ballet Theater—is set to produce a dance drama for Fox.

With the help of writer Tracy Oliver, the drama will follow a young, hip and diverse group of aspiring dancers as they compete for places in a top ballet company, reports Deadline.

Oliver and Copeland will executive produce the show with Principato Young’s Brian Dobbins, Peter Principato and Paul Young.

Yes, Misty! Keep on winning!
