Dancing siblings Derek and Julianne Hough have come together with the Starz network to plan a new ballroom dance television series called Blackpool.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the two will be executive producers for the drama.
The site shares that the new show will focus on all aspects of a ballroom competition, and will be strongly inspired by the Houghs' personal experiences. Both Derek and Julianne have a strong dance background and have appeared on multiple seasons of Dancing with the Stars.
The LA Times reports that the Safe Haven star, who is currently dating Ryan Seacrest, stated, “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.”
Her brother added, “Viewers are going to see a twisted, sexy, funny, dark and passionate side of the drama and politics in the world of ballroom dance that delves deeper than spray tans and sequins.”
No casting news for the show has yet been released.
