YouTube and Lionsgate have announced plans to continue the “Step Up” dance franchise in the form of the first original scripted series on YouTube Red.
YouTube has ordered a full season of the series based on the now decade-old film franchise that has grossed more than $650 million at the global box office. It will offer a heart-pounding, sexy, music-filled drama about dancers in a contemporary performing arts school.
Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot and Meredith Milton will executive produce. Production begins later this year ahead of an exclusive debut on YouTube Red next year.
