Gear up, dance heads: Step Up is becoming a TV series!
YouTube has ordered a full season of the beloved dance movie franchise, Step Up, with original stars Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum serving as executive producers, the streaming service announced Thursday.
Step Up producers Adam Shankman (also a judge on So You Think You Can Dance), Jennifer Gibgot and Meredith Milton will also serve as EPs alongside the Tatums.
While it’s a bummer that Channing and Jenna won’t be starring in the new series, at least they’re connected to the franchise in some small way.
Filming starts later this year on the Step Up series and will debut on YouTube Red, a subscriber-based service, in 2017.
On Thursday, Channing opened up to Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles about intimate details about his sex life with his wife. “We get down,” the 36-year-old actor said. “Me and Jenna have a great sex life.”
"Me and sex are friends," he continued. "It's not a means. It should be something that enriches your life... It shouldn't be the only reason you're in a relationship."
Last January, Channing and Jenna opened up to ET's Kevin Frazier about those sexy Magic Mike XXL moves.
“God, it’s like the best time ever,” Jenna gushed to ET at the time of the couple's Magic Mike rehearsals at home. “I get to watch all the choreography, listen to the music and he lets me put my input in.”
ET is at VidCon in Anaheim, California, this week with YouTube’s biggest stars. Check back for full coverage and watch below for an exclusive behind-the scenes look at Todrick Hall’s music video:
