The CW is going to get real right here in Salt Lake City. The network has announced a summer series set inside Ballet West.
Here's the release:
"'Breaking Pointe" goes behind the stage curtain for an intense, unfiltered look at one of the most competitive ballet companies in the country, Ballet West, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
"Beneath the beauty and glamour of the dance and costumes is a gritty dog-eat-dog world of extreme athleticism, focus, dedication, passion, pressure and, of course, the hunt for the unattainable...perfection."
That would pretty much be the definition of reality TV, wouldn't it?The show, which does not yet have an airdate, will come to us from the producers of "Big Brother" and "The City."
