Bunheads premiered on FAM on June 11, 2012. Michelle Simms had a promising career as a classically???trained professional dancer but was drawn to the lights of Las Vegas. Now, with a dead???end job as a 30???something showgirl, she's found the excitement of Sin City has lost its appeal, and her persistent suitor, Hubbell Flowers, is gaining it. With promises of a cushy life in his coastal town of Paradise, CA, Hubbell convinces Michelle to marry him and move away. Once in Paradise, Michelle discovers that Hubbell forgot to mention that he lives with his mother, the strong???headed, imperious Fanny Flowers, who is not pleased that Hubbell has run off and married a stranger. A former dancer herself, Fanny runs the local dance studio, which Michelle comes upon and ends up bonding with some of Fanny's dance students: sweet Boo, who would give anything to be a ???bunhead??? but struggles against her body type; rebellious Sasha, who possesses the classic ballet dancer's body and talent but - distracted by family issues at home - doesn't seem to have her heart in dancing; shapely Ginny, who is not yet comfortable in her own skin; and fun-loving Melanie, who is ready for whatever life throws at her. Michelle's budding relationship with these girls helps her adapt to small town living and her uneasy role as a new daughter-in-law.
