CBS orders 3 Ball’s family dancing format with ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ duo

NCIS: Los Angeles (LR: LL Cool J & Chris O’Donnell)

US broadcaster CBS has ordered a family dance competition series that has NCIS: Los Angeles stars LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell attached.

Come Dance With Me (w/t) is from US-based duo CBS Television Studios and 3 Ball Productions, and will follow talented young dancers as they are joined by a family member or friend to become their partner.

The duos will then learn and perform challenging routines, with the assistance of professional choreographers, in a competition with others.

LL Cool J and O’Donnell will exec produce, alongside 3 Ball trio Reinout Oerlemans, Ross Weintraub and Jeff Altrock.

“We believe this concept is fun for the whole family, especially given the number of children we both have,” said the NCIS stars.

“We reminisced about our kids’ dance lessons and how it would look if they had to teach US how to dance. What we noticed was, aside from the two left feet element, like most parents, no one wants to let their kids down. The show is about being creative, having a good time, and bringing families together through dance.”

3 Ball’s Oerlemans added: “Shepherding this show has been a labor of love, and the fact that it comes to CBS at a time when families are hungry for fun, uplifting entertainment is especially gratifying.”
