Misty Copeland Is Making A TV Show About Ballet

Thank you, worlddd.

Noted amazing person Misty Copeland is making a TV drama about ballet.

According to Deadline, Copeland will work with writer Tracy Oliver -- the same behind the sitcom based on John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's relationship -- to create a show for Fox about a diverse young group of aspiring dancers competing for spots in a premier ballet company. 

The dancer, who rose to viral Internet fame after her 2014 Under Armour commercial, was recently made the first black female American Ballet Theater principal dancer in history. 

To tide you over until the first glimpse at the show, here's Copeland performing with Yo-Yo Ma on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert":
