This is different!
Julianne and Derek Hough just scored a deal with Starz to produce a competitive dark drama about ballroom dancing, which is titled Blackpool, and even though it's still in the works, we cannot wait to see it!!
While Derek has appeared on Dancing with the Stars, he notes that this show is gonna be quite entertaining:
“What makes it so interesting is seeing all of the politics and the scandal. It’s framed in the world of ballroom dancing, but the stories that are intertwined are of the partnerships and the sex and the love triangles.”
And to add to the drama, Julianne said:
“When you’re in the world, you’re so invested. It’s literally the be-all and end-all. But when you step back from it, you see that obsession with perfection and the fact that the lifestyle that you thought was so glamorous is actually a little shocking. We definitely want it to be fictionalized. We’re going to start with our experiences in the world and stories that we’ve either seen or gone through, but it'll be fun to be able to elaborate and fictionalize these characters."
The brother and sister duo do not have plans to be on the show, but they will be the executive producers, head choreographers and will be choosing the cast.
Mixing drama and dancing is certainly a treat!! This series is gonna be just as suave as the Houghs!!
Will U be watching?!?
