SA dances again with BBCWW

A broadcaster in South Africa has commissioned a local version of the BBC Worldwide (BBCWW) format Dancing With the Stars, returning the show to the territory after a brief hiatus.

Strictly Come Dancing

M-Net 101, part of pay platform DStv, will begin airing a South African version of the show in February 2018, with BBCWW-backed local prodco Rapid Blue onboard production duties.

The dancing format was previously licensed by South African pubcaster SABC, which dropped its version in 2014.

Six male and six female celebrities take part in the show alongside 12 professional Latin and ballroom dancers.

The show made its debut in 2004 on BBC1 in the UK as Strictly Come Dancing, with Australia’s Seven Network becoming the first broadcaster to launch its own adaptation the same year, while the UK is now in the midst of its fifteenth season.

Dancing With the Stars has since been remade in over 50 territories, including in the US for ABC and in France for TF1.
