Record producer and American Idol judge Randy Jackson is executive producing and hosting a new Hip-Hop dance competition reality show titled World Moves which will premiere on NBC during the upcoming fall season.
During the unscripted series, Jackson and the creators of the World Hip Hop Championship dance competition audition thousands of dance crews from around the world, for a chance to come to Los Angeles to compete for the global championship and to win an international touring contract.
The live television series features five to seven members demonstrating their creativity, athleticism and ability to dance, while capturing the personal drama that unfolds within each of the teams.
World Moves is part of NBC's new 2007-08 primetime line up, which was announced two days ago (May 14).
The network hopes to capture a younger demographic with this year's programming lineup.
"Last year we promised a return to the NBC legacy of quality, and in terms of awards, buzz and critical acclaim, that's just what we delivered," said NBC Entertainment President Kevin Reilly. "We've got the class and next season we're ready to add some mass, with new shows that build on the creative accomplishments of last season and are as broad as they are good. Combine the energy of these new programs with the bulked-up strength of our existing NBC hits and you've got a lineup that's poised to take us to the next level."
The World Hip Hop Championship is an annual event produced by Hip Hop International, a Los Angeles based live event and television production company.
The 2007 World Hip Hop Championship takes place July 28-29 in Los Angeles.
The three-day event features panel workshops with legendary Hip-Hop dancers, an urban moves dance workshop, a popping and locking contest and more.
