Step It Up Update

We get some news today about Bravo's upcoming dance reality series, from the producers of Project Runway. The name of the show has been changed to Step It Up And Dance, and the host will be actress Elizabeth Berkley of Showgirls notoriety. (Note to self: don't do Elizabeth Berkley image searches while at the day job). We had heard unofficial reports that she would fill the host duties on the show but began to doubt them earlier this week when we heard that she had signed on for a recurring role on CSI: Miami. We also learn that the show is currently in production in LA.

We had previously reported that Broadway director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell had taken on the role of mentor to the dance contestants. So will Elizabeth Berkley and Jerry Mitchell become the Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn of the dance world?
