Got to Dance producers Shine TV has announced it has brokered the TV format franchise to German and Vietnamese TV networks.
According to C21 Media the dance competition which airs on Sky One in the UK will be aired internationally in the same format to Got to Dance on UK television.
The Got to Dance franchise was sold to America as Live To Dance in 2010 with Paula Abdul, Travis Payne and Kimberly Wyatt as judges to rival So You Think You Can Dance on Fox, and Got to Dance – Tylko Taniec in Poland in 2012 on the network Polsac.
