A reboot of the 1983 film, Flashdance, is in the works at the streamer, Paramount Plus. The original, directed by Adrian Lyne, centred on a passionate young dancer who aspires to become a professional ballerina.

Flashdance starred Jennifer Beals opposite Michael Nouri, who played her elder suitor and the owner of the steel mill where she works by day in Pittsburgh. The potential series reboot hails from Paramount Television Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tracy McMillan is set to write the script. Angela Robinson is on board to direct the new version that will revolve around a young Black woman with ballet dreams and a strip club reality, who struggles to find her place in the world while navigating romance, money, art, and friendship.

McMillan, Robinson, and Lynda Obst will serve as executive producers on the series.
