Yet Another Dance Show In The Works

American Idol's Randy Jackson has received the go-ahead from MTV to begin production on "Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew".

Basic premise of the show -- a sort of hip-hop "So You Think You Can Dance?" -- remains: Dance "crews" of five to seven members come to Los Angeles to compete against each other. Viewers will pick the ultimate winner, with live performance shows sending home one team each week.


This joins Bravo's Step It Up and ABC's Dance Wars: Carrie Anne vs Bruno as new productions of dance reality programming here in the US. If the TV writers strike drags on, chances are we'll see more.
