FX has released the first official teaser trailer for "Fosse/Verdon," an eight-part limited series that stars Academy Award-winner Sam Rockwell as legendary choreographer Bob Fosse and four-time Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams as legendary Broadway dancer Gwen Verdon.

Based on the best-selling biography "Fosse" by Sam Wasson, the biographical series will chronicle the tumultuous relationship between Fosse and Verdon, who not only collaborated on several of award-winning musicals but also entered into a decade-long marriage that turned emotionally painful due to Fosse's frequent extramarital affairs.

Hailing from the people who brought you the Tony-winning musicals "Hamilton" and "Dear Evan Hansen," "Fosse/Verdon" is written and executive produced by Steven Levenson (writer of "Dear Evan Hansen") and is also executive produced by Tony-and-Emmy-winning theatre director Thomas Kail (In the Heights, Hamilton, Grease: Live) and Lin-Manuel Miranda (creator and star of "Hamilton").

"Fosse/Verdon" is due to premiere in April on FX. Watch the teaser, above.
