The Big Leap TV series filmed in Chicago premieres this Monday

Filmed at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios and the Rialto Theater in Joliet, the Fox TV series premiere of The Big Leap is this Monday, September 20.

The Big Leap is a contemporary tale about second chances, chasing your dreams and taking back what’s yours.

The show revolves around a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life who compete to be part of a competition reality series that is putting on a modern, hip remake of Swan Lake. What they lack in the traditional dancer body type, they make up for with their edge, wit and desire to reimagine an iconic story to fit their own mold
