LOS ANGELES - Get on your dancing shoes: a new drama series "The Big Leap" will take center stage this fall — and FOX has unveiled a special first look.
The uplifting drama, set to premiere Sept. 20, is all about second chances, chasing your dreams and taking back what’s yours.
"It is never too late to believe in yourself," Ser’ Darius Blain, who plays Reggie Sadler in the series, said in the first look.

The show revolves around a group of diverse, down-on-their-luck everyday characters attempting to change their lives by participating in a reality dance competition.
"There are times in our lives, where we all would love a second chance," Scott Foley ("Grey’s Anatomy," "Scandal"), who stars as Nick Blackburn in the series, said. "For me, that’s what makes the show so great."
Inspired by a U.K. reality format, "The Big Leap" is an innovative show-within-a-show that takes viewers on a journey of self-acceptance and empowerment at any age.
