In the hope of getting their lives back in hand, amateur dancers take part in a televised competition: this is the story of The Big Leap, a new drama series to be discovered now on Disney +!
A STORY OF SECOND CHANCES
This Wednesday, December 8, Disney + unveils the second episode of The Big Leap, a series centered on a group of amateur dancers who try their luck in a television competition. As in Glee, to name but one, it is above all the story of individuals considered as outsiders, united somewhat in spite of themselves, and who will each benefit from this collective strength to reconnect with their self-esteem and their ambitions.
Headlining, we find Gabby (Simone Recasner), single mother forced to give up her dreams after high school, Mike (Jon Rudnitsky), an unemployed mechanic desperate to win back his wife, Julia (Teri Polo), an influential mom who finds it hard to come to terms with her age; and Reggie (Ser’Darius Blain), an American football star close to being deregistered from the NFL.
Created by Liz Heldens (Friday Night Lights), The Big Leap obviously has its share of personal dramas in store for you, shenanigans to compromise certain competitors, rivalries and low masses, not to mention impromptu dance numbers, because why not!
BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE COMPETITION
Like the UnREAL series, which highlighted behind the scenes of a reality TV show, The Big Leap also invites us behind the scenes of this competition, in particular through the character of producer Nick Blackburn. Ready to do anything to make an audience, he will stop at nothing, not even playing with the feelings of the candidates and nosing around in their private life in order to create the event.
Rather cruel and unsympathetic at first glance, the character played by Scott Foley (Scandal) also hides a well-kept secret… The Big Leap is however less gloomy and pessimistic than the series worn by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer. She relies on cheerful personal trajectories and touching relationships between certain participants to retain the attention of the spectators.
Discover the first two episodes of The Big Leap on Disney + now. The first season, composed of eleven episodes, is broadcast on a weekly basis on the platform.
