Jenna Dewan is about to make sure that no one puts Baby in the corner.
The Resident‘s actress is the host of FOX’s new dating show in which two strangers learn half of a dance routine, then meet for the first time on a blind date where they will dance together without speaking.
The series, entitled Flirty Dancing, is based on the British show of the same name but will feature singles performing a different choreographed dance with two potential love interests, before choosing the one with whom they have the strongest connection in the American version.
“Flirty Dancing is a truly unique format – it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. It’s fun, fresh and romantic, and broadens the dating format far beyond its traditional boundaries,” said Rob Wade who is President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials at FOX Entertainment. “Jenna is our dream host. She knows all about how powerful connection and chemistry can be on the dance floor. So there really is no one better to help guide these singles in their search for love.”
Flirty Dancing is set to premiere this winter.
