The 66-year-old choreographer and director-producer, best known for his work on the High School Musical franchise, has joined forces with Flashdance star Jennifer Beals and James Larosa, creator of VH1’s cheerleading drama series Hit the Floor, for Fox’s dance drama The Edge.

Written and executive produced by Larosa, The Edge is set in the Los Angeles dance world, where it’s survival of the fittest. And no one is more fit than this ensemble of ambitious, sometimes ruthless women and men who have trained their whole lives to be the best and won’t let anything—or anyone—get in their way.

Ortega, Beals and Larosa will executive produce. Sony Pictures Television is the studio.

Ortega is director and choreographer of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, starring Victoria Justice, Fox’s television remake of the cult classic set to premiere on October 20.
