On Friday, ABC released some show details for how Dancing With The Stars will be aired tonight in terms of the level of interactivity. ABC.com will be offering five live streams from key positions at the show venue, allowing fans to choose views of the Red Room, judges, sky box, a wide angle of the dance floor and a hosted feed that will highlight relevant social media conversations. Below is more information from USA Today and Executive Producer Rob Wade. This is going to be cool and it’s going to be fun to see Lacey Schwimmer again too. Pic above courtesy of Mandy Moore.
During the premiere, ABC.com will offer four live-streaming backstage cameras and a simultaneous digital show called Dancing with the Stars: All Access hosted by Dominic Bowden and Lacey Schwimmer. The live streams are meant to be consumed as a second-screen complement to the television broadcast.
“You’ll see a lot of the stuff that happens backstage during the show and during the commercial breaks,” said Dancing with the Stars executive producer Rob Wade. “Really what you see on the show is only half the story so we felt like it was something that really gave you all-access to our cast.”
The backstage cameras will feature views of the judges, skybox, backstage Red Room, and the lower balcony. Online viewers will be able to choose which camera to stream. The simulcast digital program will feature commentary and interviews during commercial breaks as well.
In addition to the live streams, viewers will be able to keep tabs on couple’s rehearsals throughout the week. Raw rehearsal footage as well as original digital content will be uploaded to abc.com every week.
