The CW is looking to move more aggressively into the reality genre, with the development of two competition series in familiar formats, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
“One Mass Dance” will recruit dance teams from three cities to perform a “mass dance” before an audience. Weight-loss series “Shed to Wed” will pit couples against each other as they try to lose weight before their weddings.
The CW, home to "America’s Next Top Model," has two more reality shows, "Fly Girls" and "High Society," that will debut this month.
Furthermore, according to THR, all of this is "[I]n addition to CW’s recently reported docusoap in development with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson and the scavenger-hunt show ‘Lost Weekend.’ "
Reality shows are generally less expensive to produce than scripted fare.
