Fox Eyes Reality Dance Competition Featuring Average Joe/Jane Couples

So you think you and your significant other can dance?

Fox is developing a reality competition series featuring non-celebrity couples performing challenging choreographed routines.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America (American Idol, America’s Got Talent) and Five Six Seven, Inc., the prospective series hails from creators Stijn Bakkers (The Voice) and Fremantle’s Toby Gorman.

According to the network, the currently untitled project will “highlight the lives of real-life couples who, each week, will participate in intensive training, rehearsals and live performances, until one couple is crowned the winner.”

The latest twist in the dance-competition genre comes on the heels of Fox announcing last spring that its reality juggernaut American Idol would leave the air after its upcoming 15th season. What’s more, Fox has yet to announce a renewal (or a cancellation), for its summer staple So You Think You Can Dance.

    So Dancing with the Non-Stars? IMHO, this holds zero appeal. Why not just taje a break from dancing/singing shows for a while?

  2. KC says:

    Ah…no thanks

  3. Joey says:

    The day that an international court bans the production of reality shows can’t come soon enough.

  4. WK says:

    I used to like SYTYCD, but faded on it. This sounds much worse, and as bad as that amateur dance show ABC tried a few weeks ago. What is Fox thinking?

  5. amysue4772 says:

    So exactly the same as Dancing with the “Stars”

  6. maregolden says:

    Doesn’t ABC already have that show? I think it’s called Dancing with People You’ve Never Heard Of.”

  7. Gemma says:

    So I guess that means SYTYCD is dead?

  8. Daya says:

    How about nobodies who team up with celebrities? I’d be up for that.

  9. whiskey says:

    Nope. How about we just renew So You Think You Can Dance?

  10. DavidSask says:

    WTF? Fail from the get go! Fox already struggles with reality and its current dance show should be eliminated. Heads should roll at this network also for Minority Report being greenlit.

  11. Paul says:

    I will be *extremely* unhappy if Fox green-lights this idea and cancels SYTYCD. I certainly won’t watch this new debacle.

  12. Vicki Boccardo says:

    I can do this show!! I have been waiting for this show!! I will kick everyones A$$. I teach a crazy aerobics class that no one can handle but still shows up for. I exercise everyday. I danced since I was 4 and competitively until I was in college where I was running a dance show and organization including ballroom.
