Even as Indian television has seen dance reality shows galore like Dance India Dance, Nach Baliye and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa amongst others on Hindi general entertainment channels (GECs), another new dance reality show format is all set to hit screens in the near future.
Zee Entertainment Enterprises’ Hindi GEC &TV has acquired the rights of the global dance reality format show So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) from Dick Clark Productions.
Endemol Shine India will produce the India edition of the reality show for the channel.
Dancers from across the country – amateur or professional – can participate in the show. &TV has already started the online registration process. However, the channel has not yet made any official comment on the air date and time.
SYTYCD India will also see the country’s best choreographers as jury members on the show.
The original show was created by American Idol producers Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe is produced by Core Media Group’s 19 Entertainment and Dick Clark Productions.
In the US, SYTYCD was recently renewed by Fox for a 13th season, which is slated to go on air on 30 May.
