CBS will be hopping on the bandwagon that is the dancing reality show.  The description sounds like a mix between So You Think You Can Dance & America’s Got Talent.

Here’s the press release:

CBS SAYS… “GOT TO DANCE”

New Competition Series Is Based on the British Hit That Debuted Earlier This Year

 

Dancers of Every Genre, Age and Number – Solo or in a Group – Can Compete

 

CBS has ordered GOT TO DANCE, a new reality-competition series based on the hit British show where, in the most inclusive talent search on television, dancers of any age, group-size and style will compete to become the country’s favorite dance act.

Amateurs with raw talent from across the nation, either performing solo or in a group, can audition any form of dancing: from ballroom to break dance, bhangra to ballet, and tap to tango.  The most talented and entertaining dancers will be invited to audition for the panel of judges, all world-class dancers themselves.  The very best will perform LIVE in the Semi-Finals and Finals where they will battle it out for viewers who will vote to choose the GOT TO DANCE champion.

GOT TO DANCE has been a ratings sensation for Britain’s Sky 1, making it one of the UK’s top-rated pay television series this season.

The panel of judges, as well as information regarding auditions, will be announced at a later date.  Details about the audition process will also be available on CBS.com.

GOT TO DANCE is a Shine Group format, created by Princess Productions and Shine TV and is produced by Reveille.  Elisabeth Murdoch, Howard T. Owens, Mark Koops and Robin Ashbrook are executive producers.  Distribution is handled by Shine International.
