Misty Copeland's on a roll. Lately, it seems like we can hardly go a week without hearing about some new project, honor or accomplishment attributed to the American Ballet Theatre soloist. I mean, weren't we just telling you about her U.S. debut as Odette/Odile in the Washington Ballet's Swan Lake like...three days ago?
Yesterday, Copeland demonstrated her bottomless energy and drive—once again. (Seriously, does she sleep?!) Oxygen Media announced an upcoming reality series: "The Misty Copeland Project." As of now, there's not a whole lot of info out there about the series (including an estimated start date). But what we do know is that this doesn't seem like it's going to be "Keeping up with the Kardashians"-style reality TV—meaning it won't focus on Copeland's day-to-day personal life. Instead, the show's premise centers on #MentorMisty (can we make that a thing?). It'll follow a handful of ballet students—with their sights set on professional careers—as they travel to NYC for the ultimate Copeland coaching experience. Intriguing, no?
We'll be on the lookout for the deets, but in the meantime, let us know your thoughts in the comments: What direction would you like to see "The Misty Copeland Project" take?
