Talpa’s Dance Dance Dance Heads to Italy


HILVERSUM: FOX Networks Group Italy’s FOX Life has acquired Talpa’s format Dance Dance Dance, which is slated to broadcast later this year.

The format launched at MIPCOM 2015 and currently airs on RTL in Germany. In addition, a second season of Dance Dance Dance is broadcasting on RTL4 in the Netherlands.

Dance Dance Dance sees celebrities reenact iconic dance performances with revolutionary technology to reproduce the original setting and choreography. Celebrities partner with someone they’re close to as they train for the dance.

Maarten Meijs, the managing director of Talpa Global, said, “With the U.K. and China soon to join, Dance Dance Dance is making its way to key territories around the globe. The combination of extraordinary dancing and innovative technology truly makes it a unique show that has found a great home at FOX in Italy. With the introduction of a VR feature in the app in the Netherlands, we’re thrilled to enhance the viewers’ experience even more and extend the show’s reach to the younger demo.”
