On the heels of its success with “The Masked Singer,” a U.S. version of a South Korean hit, Fox has ordered a pilot of “a remake of ‘La La Land’-influenced British format ‘Flirty Dancing,’ reports Peter White at Deadline.com.
Adds White, “The format offers a new twist on two genres, dating and dancing. Two complete strangers will be taught one half of a dance routine and then will go on a date where they have to dance. Once the couples have completed their dance date, they will part still not yet having spoken a word to each other, but will hope that they have done enough to warrant a second date.”
The story notes that the pilot “is the latest entertainment offering from Rob Wade, Fox’s President of Alternative Entertainment, who joined in 2017.”
