Everything We Know About Jenna Dewan’s New Reality Dating Series, ‘Flirty Dancing’
Get ready: Jenna Dewan is hosting Fox’s new reality dating series Flirty Dancing, set to premiere this winter.
The show is part performance, part blind date. So naturally, we needed to find out as much information on the upcoming series as possible.
Read on for everything we know about Jenna Dewan’s new show, Flirty Dancing.
1. WHAT IS JENNA DEWAN’S NEW SHOW, ‘FLIRTY DANCING’?
In the new show, complete strangers are each taught half of a dance routine, then meet for the first time on a blind date where they have to dance together without saying a word. We’re serious.
Based on the U.K. series of the same name, Fox’s Flirty Dancing will feature singles performing a different choreographed dance with each of two potential love interests, before choosing the one with whom they share the strongest connection.
“Flirty Dancing is a truly unique format—it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. It’s fun, fresh and romantic, and broadens the dating format far beyond its traditional boundaries,” Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Entertainment told Deadline. “Jenna is our dream host. She knows all about how powerful connection and chemistry can be on the dance floor. So there really is no one better to help guide these singles in their search for love.”
2. Who is in it?
Dewan will host the series (of course). And according to a People exclusive, Dancing with the Stars pros and Mirrorball Trophy champions Val Chmerkovskiy and Sharna Burgess will work on the show as choreographers.
In addition to Chmerkovskiy, 33, and Burgess, 34, Dominque Kelley (Broadway’s In The Heights), Kat Burns (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Travis Wall, Tyce Diorio, Chloe Arnold and Jonathan Redavid (So You Think You Can Dance) will be showcasing their choreographing talents as well.
3. Where and When Can You watch it?
Flirty Dancing premieres December 29 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
