ABC confirms it is eyeing Dance X,a Dancing With the Stars spin-off that is currently on the air in England.
ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson said Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills that the network is developing the show, although it has not decided when it would air should it go forward.
According to McPherson, the show features teams of dancers coached by two Dancing With the Stars judges. The two teams compete against each other, with dancers eliminated as the show goes on.
McPherson also said Harold Perrineau will return to Lost in the role of Michael.
That Lost announcement was supposed to be made Thursday at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, but McPherson released the news after coming under fire from several reporters for wanting to hold the update until the event.
