NBC Orders Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan Tatum Dance Competition Series

”Step Up“ stars will executive produce six-episode reality series

NBC has ordered a dance competition series from husband-wife duo Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum.

The untitled unscripted series is described as a fresh take on the dance competition genre, and Dewan Tatum will serve as judge and mentor. Tatum is also set to appear on the series in some capacity.

This won’t be the first time Dewan Tatum has put her dance background to use. The “Witches of East End” star has previously served as guest judge on Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and co-starred with her now-husband in 2006’s “Step Up.”

The duo also competed against each other on the Season 2 premiere of “Lip Sync Battle,” setting an all-time ratings record for the network with 4.7 million total viewers.

The series is produced by EndemolShine North America, Dewan Tatum’s Purple Cup Productions and Tatum’s Free Association.

Peter Kiernan, Reid Carolin and Meegan Kiernan will also serve as executive producers.
