These days, everyone is getting into the original scripted series game. Well, add one more to the list with today’s announcement from You Tube Red.
The streaming service announced that it has given a straight-to-series order to Step Up.
The series will be based on the Step Up franchise which includes Step Up (2006), Step Up 2: The Streets (2008), Step Up 3D (2010), Step Up Revolution (2012) and Step Up: All In (2014).
The original film starred Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum and both are on board as executive producers for the series.
“I’ve been a fan of the Step Up movies for years and always believed the films would translate into an awesome original series,” YouTube’s Global Head of Original Content Susanne Daniels said in a statement. “We know that dance is a hugely successful global category on YouTube, so I’m excited to have a series rooted in such an enormously popular genre on our platform.”
You Tube Red will debut Step Up next year and it will be the streaming service’s first original scripted series.
