Dance Dance Revolution Spawns TV Show

Get ready…you know you’ve been dying for this to happen. CBS and DIC Entertainment, working in association with Konami, earlier this week unveiled plans for a new televised dance series based on…you guessed it, Dance Revolution. Those wanting to tune in will have to wait until Sept. 16, when this show puts on its dancing shoes as part of CBS’s Saturday morning line up.

Dance Revolution, said all parties involved, is a live-action television series based on Konami’s extremely popular video game franchise Dance Dance Revolution. Notes published by DIC and Konami describe this series as one in which “’tweens’ and teens bring their freshest moves to this sensational new dance competition where teams of dancers display their innovative routines. Hosted by the charismatic “Dance Revolution” house band, kid-friendly judges determine the winners as the dancers perform their routines to the cool sounds of the band.”

Dance Revolution will also offer onscreen visuals so that viewers at home can stop drooling on themselves while staring at the glowing box and instead partake in specific dance moves and steps.

“This collaboration gives Konami an excellent opportunity to bring elements of the DDR franchise to television,” states Kazumi Kitaue, Chairman & CEO of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc, in a statement. “We hope to create equal success with the franchise on TV that we have had with the video game and look forward to working with DIC on bringing fun, interactive entertainment to young audiences.”
