Mary J. Blige is in the process of developing the TV series ‘8-Count,’ a music drama about life of world renowned choreographer Laurieann Gibson:
“Mary J. Blige is developing a music drama at FOX which will be based on the life of creative director and choreographer Laurieann Gibson.
According to multiple industry reports, the project, titled 8 Count, is a “music-fueled drama that follows a young choreographer who, in order to redeem her damaged reputation in the cutthroat music/dance world, must invest in an up-and-coming singer, who also has one last shot at stardom.”
