Misty Copeland to Star in New Reality Series
It’s been a whirlwind year for American Ballet Theatre soloist Misty Copeland. In addition to publishing her book, starring in a viral Under Armour ad campaign and being appointed a member of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (oh, and gracing our June/July cover), she can now add television star and executive producer to the list. Last week, Oxygen Media announced that a new reality series, “The Misty Copeland Project,” is in the works. The show will follow a group of young dancers from diverse backgrounds as they head to New York City to take the next step towards professional careers. Their coach and mentor? You got it—Misty Copeland. The show’s air date is still unknown, but the Oxygen network is guaranteed to have a devoted dance audience when it does.
