Get your sexy jazz hands fix with this new ‘Fosse/Verdon’ trailer [WATCH]

Life was way more than a cabaret for Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. At least going by the new “Fosse/Verdon” trailer (watch above).

FX’s upcoming limited series tracks the fruitful but tumultuous professional and personal relationship between theater icons Fosse (Sam Rockwell) and Verdon (Michelle Williams). The full trailer showcases the evolution of the pair’s relationship, from the beginning of their romance and wildly successful, Tony-winning collaborations (like “Damn Yankees”) to the behind-the-scenes turmoil as Fosse transitioned from choreography to filmmaking. The clip includes a peek at the making of “Cabaret” (1972), which won Fosse the Best Director Oscar. You’ll also get a better look at Rockwell’s and Williams’ dancing prowess, and keep an eye out for Fosse’s trademark turned-in knees and jazz hands.

In real life, Fosse and Verdon married in 1960 and separated in 1971, but never divorced, continuing to work together on such projects as the original “Chicago” musical, in which Verdon originated the role of Roxie Hart, and Fosse’s autobiographical film “All That Jazz” (1979), before his death of a heart attack in 1987. (Verdon died in 2000.)

Executive-produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Thomas Kail, Steven Levenson, Joel Fields and George Stelzner, along with Rockwell and Williams. The cast includes Norbert Leo Butz as Paddy Chayefsky, Nate Corddry as Neil Simon, and Margaret Qualley as Ann Reinking, the Tony-winning choreographer with whom Fosse had a six-year relationship during his and Verdon’s separation.
