Derek and Julianne Hough Launch Starz Ballroom Dance Series Blackpool
The Houghs are reuniting on the dance floor! We’ve missed movie star Julianne Hough on Dancing With the Stars, but now the two-time DWTS pro champ is teaming up with her three-time champ brother Derek Hough for an original series on Starz.
According to Deadline, the series, Blackpool, will be set in the world of international competitive ballroom dancing. The Houghs will be executive producers and also serve as head choreographers. The series will revolve around the prestigious annual ballroom competition in Blackpool, England, and will reportedly show dancers’ obsessions with perfection and “the darker side of the glamorous world of ballroom dance.” So expect some drama!
Julianne recently starred in the Nicholas Sparks’ film Safe Haven, and she’s been promoting the movie around the world. Derek is back to compete on DWTS Season 16, and he’s paired with American Idol alum Kellie Pickler.
It’s not clear when Blackpool might premiere, but we’re curious to see it! What do you think?
