Famous dancing siblings will produce and choreograph “Blackpool”
Julianne and Derek Hough, the famous dancing siblings who went mainstream with their impeccable performances on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, are now teaming up for their own, dancing-oriented TV show.Derek has long revealed that he plans to move away from DWTS, while Julianne has been doing movies (and music) for the most part of the recent years, so this move makes sense.
The LA Times reports that the new show, which will air on Starz and see Derek and Julianne as producers and head choreographers, will be called “Blackpool” and will be set in the world of international ballroom competitive dancing.
“Derek and I are thrilled to be working with Starz. We feel that their passion and the style, and quality of their programming provide the perfect environment to capture the true essence of this world that Derek and I know so well and means so much to us,” Julianne says.
An airing date is yet to be announced.
