The series also stars Murray Bartlett, Annaleigh Ashford, Dan Stevens, Juliette Lewis, Quentin Plair, Robin de Jesús, and Spencer Boldman in supporting roles. The Chippendales rose to prominence in the early 80s with a group of male stripper/exotic performers who mostly perform for predominantly female audience. Apart from touring across the USA, the Chippendales have also performed across various European, Asian, and South American countries.
The true-crime drama will also explore the fallout between Banerjee and his business partner Nick De Noia. According to reports, Bannerjee had hired a hitman to murder Nick along with two other business associates.
