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.”
