Disney+ has announced the full list of everything coming to Canada in February 2022 including premieres of new Disney+ Original Series, additional episodes of fan-favorite series, and new library title additions. One of the library titles that will be added to the service next month is Season 1 of “The Big Leap” which arrives on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.
“The Big Leap” is a modern tale about second chances, chasing your dreams and taking back what’s yours. From creator/executive producer Liz Heldens (“The Passage,” “Friday Night Lights”), director/executive producer Jason Winer (“Modern Family,” “Perfect Harmony”) and executive producer Sue Naegle (“Soundtrack,” “The Plot Against America”), the show revolves around a group of diverse, down-on-their-luck characters attempting to change their lives by participating in a potentially life-ruining reality dance show featuring a modern reimagining of “Swan Lake.”
On the heels of his latest show failure and a stressful divorce, producer NICK BLACKBURN (Scott Foley, “Scandal”) reluctantly signs on to produce “The Big Leap,” a high-stakes docuseries filming in Motor City. The show, which brings together dancers from every age, background and body type, is the brainchild of former dancer WAYNE FONTAINE (Kevin Daniels, “Twelfth Night,” “Modern Family”). With choreographer MONICA SULLIVAN (Mallory Jansen, “Galavant”) on board to help Nick mount the production, he begins his search for not only the best dancers, but also the ones that could stir up the most drama and buzz.
Inspired by a U.K. reality format, “Big Ballet,” “The Big Leap” is an innovative show-within-a-show that takes viewers on a journey of self-acceptance, body-positivity and empowerment at any age.
“The Big Leap” is produced by 20th Television and FOX Entertainment. The series is written by Liz Heldens and directed by Jason Winer. Heldens, Winer, Sue Naegle and Peter Dale serve as executive producers.
