*The life story of famed choreographer Fatima Robinson is coming to Fox in the form of an hourlong series.

According to Deadline, FOX received a script commitment with penalty for “Take It From The Top,” which is set in 1990s era Los Angeles and centers on Robinson’s rise as a choreographer in hip-hop and the obstacles she faced along the way.
