We’ve been waiting for ABC Family’s new show, Bunheads, for months now, and the June 11 premiere is finally near. But Wetpaint Entertainment has got something even better than just news of the show’s arrival – ABC Family is offering Wetpaint Entertainmnet readers a chance to watch the first episode before everyone else!
Bunheads follows Michelle Simms, a former ballerina turned Vegas showgirl, who, after a shotgun wedding ends up in a small town called Paradise with a husband she barely knows and the grim discovery that he lives with his mother – a ballet teacher who is all but pleased with the new addition to their family.
While Michelle’s initial reaction is shock and horror, she soon finds herself bonding with the young students at the school and maybe even ready to adapt to a crazy living situation.
Starring Tony Award-winning actress Sutton Foster as Michelle, Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) as her new husband and Kelly Bishop (Dirty Dancing, Gilmore Girls) as her strong-headed mother-in-law, Bunheads is the latest creation of Gilmore Girls producer Amy Sherman-Palladino.
While we’ve just seen one episode, we’re already in love with that familiar Gilmore Girls-like banter and the promise of a lot o’ drama.
Watch the pilot and tell us what you think!
