Fatima Robinson's name might not immediately ring a bell, but you've likely seen her choreography work in a plethora of visuals for music's biggest artists. Robinson's story will soon be told in the form of an hour-long hip-hop dance drama inspired by her life and career, tentatively titled Take It From The Top, which has been picked up by FOX.
According to Deadline, FOX received a script commitment with penalty for Take It From The Top, which takes viewers back to the 1990s in Los Angeles and centers on Robinson's rise as a choreographer in hip-hop and the obstacles she faced along the way. The show will be written by NCIS: Los Angeles writer/co-producer Joseph C. Wilson as well as Abdul Williams, who wrote BET's highly acclaimed biographical series The New Edition Story.
