Amy Sherman-Palladino has brought her trademarked brand of pop culture wit-meets-charming sweetness with this brand new ABC Family series which stars Sutton Foster, Kelly Bishop, Juliana Goldani Telles, Kaitlyn Jenkins, Bailey Buntain, and Emma Dumont.


Having already had a chance to preview the Bunheads pilot, all I can do is repeatedly insist that you watch the show. The story revolves around a Vegas showgirl who gets unexpectedly married and moves to the sleepy town of her husband. There, she works with her temperamental mother-in-law at the Paradise Dance Studio. It’s a series that will focus on dance (from amazingly choreographed ballet numbers to the mentality of a dancer) just as much as family dynamics, friendships, and

This show is perfect for smart, young women as well as their older counterparts (like me!) ABC Family has picked a real winner, and Sutton Foster et al are primed to be the next big role models you feel safe in trusting. I found the series pilot to be triumphantly entertaining, sweet, and clever.

You’ll love the pop culture references, quotes, music… everything. It’s a feel-good winner. So get on board from the start, and don’t miss a (beautifully executed) step without us!

Hey…we’re not done yet! (Can you tell how deeply invested I am with this show after only one viewing?)

Bunheads premieres June 11th at 9/8 c on ABC Family.
