ABC unveiled plans for a special edition of “Dancing with the Stars,” featuring a lineup of 10 athletes from “all corners of the sports world.” The all-athletes lineup will debut in spring 2018.
In keeping with the show’s usual format, the athletes will be paired with the show’s professional dancers and will compete on the ballroom floor for a chance to win the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
Hosted by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, the special edition of “Dancing with the Stars” will air live. The athletes’ choreographed dance routines will be judged by a panel of ballroom experts, along with viewer votes.
“Dancing with the Stars” is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. Ashley Edens-Shaffer and Joe Sungkur are executive producers.
