ABC Entertainment President Comments On The Future Of Dancing With The Stars Junior

Is Dancing With The Stars Junior going to happen in the future? According to ABC Entertainment President, Channing Dungey, it might still happen at some point. Here is more from TV Guide….

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, TV Guide asked if the athletes edition would be replacing Dancing Junior. She said no, and that Dancing Junior will be hitting our screens at some point down the line; it was just a matter of casting and scheduling that lead to the switch.

“We were in the early stages of talent search for Dancing Junior and it wasn’t going to come together as quickly as we would have liked,” she said. “We’d been talking for awhile about trying to do an all-sports edition, but the problem is that athletes have such tight schedules it’s hard to do a whole 13-week run. This actually slotted in perfectly, so we’re going to try that and see how it goes.”

Lindsay Arnold To Dance In New Four Week Dancing With The Stars Sports Edition And More News

TRIB Live interviewed Lindsay Arnold on the new Dancing With The Stars tour. She talks of why the show is different and fun this time. There are also mentions on the new Dancing With The Stars Sports Edition. Note how Lindsay says the new mini season will last 4 weeks and she’ll be back for it. More below including Sasha Farber and Emma Slater wedding talk as well….

The show also features professional dancers Alan Bersten, Sharna Burgess, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Gleb Savchenko, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Hayley Erbert and Brandon Armstrong, showcasing original pieces choreographed by Emmy Award-winning choreographer Mandy Moore and ballroom and contemporary dances from the TV show.

“We are doing the freestyle, the samba, our Disney week foxtrot and our Charleston,” Arnold says. “Jordan and I also dance in a lot of new group numbers, so that is something new and different that people haven’t seen.”

Both Arnold and Fisher overcame injuries during the regular dance season.

“The biggest challenge was the semifinals because of the injuries,” she says. “I hurt my knee the day before the show and didn’t know if I was going to be able to dance. On top of that, I stabbed Jordan’s eye with my fingernail and he was pretty much blind during the live show. We wanted it so bad, we knew we had to rely on each other and work together and we somehow made it happen.”

Arnold says she’ll be back for the spring season of “Dancing with the Stars,” which will feature a mini four-week “all athletes” edition. Her immediate plans after the live tour ends in March include attending Farber’s and Slater’s wedding and taking some time off for a family vacation in Mexico.

DWTS Peta Murgatroyd To Star In Faith Based Movie “Faith, Hope & Love”

Being Peta Murgatroyd, Maks Chmerkovskiy, and Val Chmerkovskiy will be on tour in May, they may not be doing the Dancing With The Stars All Sports Edition which premiere’s April 30th. Also and in case you don’t know, Peta has a another project in the works too. According to TV Guide, she has landed her first acting gig in a faith-based family film called “Faith, Hope & Love”. Below are a few details….

Murgatroyd will star as Faith Turley, a recently divorced woman whose troubles are compounded by the fact her dance studio is in jeopardy of being shut down. Needing money, Faith enters a “Pro and a Schmo” dance contest where she partners with Jimmy Hope (Robert Krantz). It is this partnership that leads Faith to begin to rediscover her faith in life, love and the pursuit of her dreams.

This role sounds like the perfect opportunity for Murgatroyd to show off her acting chops as well as her dancing abilities. She’ll likely have a good partner in Krantz too, who is no stranger to the dance floor. Don’t believe us? Just check out his 1999 film, Do You Want to Dance?

I’m so happy for her. I just hope this isn’t the last we see of Peta on Dancing With The Stars? I love her. For more, see TV Guide

Dancing With The Stars All Athlete Edition Premiere Date Set For April

ABC released some official dates for their new Spring Schedule. According to TV By The Numbers via ABC, the “Dancing With the Stars” All Athlete Edition will premiere on Monday, April 30th. That’s a long time to wait. Are you up for it? I am a big American Idol fan. So, I’m looking forward to this change. Let us know what you think in comments.

“American Idol” will keep its familiar two-nights-a-week format when it debuts on ABC — and in turn push the next cycle of “Dancing With the Stars” to later in the spring.

That’s one of the highlights of ABC’s schedule for the back half of the season. Others include the still-untitled “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff getting a spot in the TGIT lineup and a slew of series premieres: comedies “Alex, Inc.” and “Splitting Up Together” — plus the return of “Roseanne” — and dramas “Deception” (which is getting the post-“Idol” spot on Sundays), “For the People
and “The Crossing.”

During the Winter Olympics, ABC will also run “The Bachelor Winter Games” — a cold-weather version of “Bachelor in Paradise” — to rest several shows. It will air from 8-10 p.m. Feb. 13, 15, 20 and 22.

Let’s get to the rundown, because there’s a lot to take in. Premiere dates (all times ET/PT) below. New shows are in italics. Where shows are replacing series currently on the schedule, notes on their finale dates are included.

Sunday, March 11
8 p.m. “American Idol”
10 p.m. “Deception”

Monday, March 12
8 p.m. “American Idol” (time period premiere)

Monday, April 30
8 p.m. “Dancing With the Stars” (all-athlete edition)

DWTS Rumor: Caitlyn Jenner To Dance In The New DWTS Sports Edition??

We’ve had this rumor a multiple of times. I doubt this is true anymore than the other times…and especially from this source. From the National Enquirer, they report Caitlyn Jenner is the producers number choice to dance in the Dancing With The Stars all sports edition. Be sure to read the link for more.

Rob Shuter reports…. Competition will be fierce on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” come spring — it will return with an all-athletes edition and show bosses want ex-Olympian Caitlyn Jenner!

“Jenner is one of the most celebrated athletes of all time and will bring drama and glamour to the ballroom,” an insider confided to The National ENQUIRER.

“She is the producers’ number one choice.”

My thoughts: If this rumor is true, I really don’t mind it as long as there isn’t a lot dumb drama. Let us know what you think in comments.

Colin Kaepernick , Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kobe Bryant To Dance In New DWTS Sports Edition??

Could the producers of Dancing With The Stars be thinking of getting Colin Kaepernick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. to dance in the new Dancing With The Stars Sports Edition next season? Here’s a take on the subject from Hollywood Life. Be sure to read the link for more.

“The show really wants to make a splash and they really want to get some major sports stars on next season and the top two on their list are Colin Kaepernick and Dale Earnhardt. Dale is retiring from NASCAR and they have wanted him for years and have asked forever for him to dance on the show and having Colin is just obvious with him being in the news for all the guy’s activism. The stories they could both share would be amazing and having the show only go four weeks, producers feel that they can get these big names because they don’t have to commit to a long process and timeframe. The show is very confidant that they can pull it off and are working hard to make it happen.”

I’m all for Dale dancing, but, absolutely no to Colin!

Here’s something also on the possibility of Kobe Bryant dancing (thanks Vin!). From TMZ via TooFab. Kobe has been rumored numerous times in the past. I’d love to see him dance…

With “Dancing with the Stars” doing a full sports-themed competition with athletes next season, Derek Fisher told TooFab.com “Kobe’s name keeps coming up.”

“He loves the show. He and the family watch it,” Fisher said … “[Producers] should at least try and call him!”

Let us know what you think of these three rumors so far in comments.

ETA: Well, I don’t think Dale Earnhart Jr. is too interested in doing Dancing With The Stars. Check out the tweet below for how he replied. LOL He’s too funny…

PureDWTS Dancing with the Stars Junior, Season 1 – Alabama Barker “Would Love To Be On DWTSJ”

Thought I’d do a quick sweep of the interwebs this morning, to see if anyone has heard anything about Dancing with the Stars Junior – ’cause lord knows I haven’t (and neither has Deep Throat).  Didn’t find much other than the scant amount of info in the original press release (and just other outlets parroting that Tom would not be hosting), but I did stumble across this little nugget from a few weeks back at ET:

Is Alabama Luella Barker destined for Dancing with the Stars Junior?!

Travis Barker’s daughter is just 11 years old – but with her debut single, “Our House,” out now – she’s ready to claim the spotlight.

When the father-daughter duo stopped by ET on Monday, Alabama revealed she’d love to take center stage on ABC’s DWTS youngster spinoff, set to premiere this spring.

“I would love to… let’s do it,” she said, noting that she has some dancing skills up her sleeve.

 Apparently dad Travis Barker (of Blink 182 fame) approves, which makes me wonder if her mom, DWTS season 3 contestant Shanna Moakler, is also on board – they did say in the press release that they’d be casting child stars, as well as possibly some of the children of former contestants…Alabama fits both bills.

And she appears to have some moves, too…I wouldn’t mind seeing her on the show.  Thoughts?
