[via press release from CBS]


Series Premieres with a Special Two Hour Episode on Tuesday, Jan. 4, Before Moving to Its Regular Time Period on Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM) Starting Jan. 5

Series Will Be Broadcast Live on Wednesdays Starting Jan. 12

The new CBS reality-competition series LIVE TO DANCE, which will feature one of the most inclusive talent searches ever on television, will debut with a special two hour episode, Tuesday, Jan. 4 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Paula Abdul will serve as executive producer, mentor and lead expert of the series. LIVE TO DANCE will move to its regular time period on Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on Jan. 5, and then be broadcast LIVE starting Wednesday, Jan. 12.

The premiere episode of LIVE TO DANCE will follow dancers from across the country auditioning for Abdul and the series' experts in specially constructed Dance Domes that were built in both New York and Los Angeles to host the auditions. At the end of the premiere episode, a group of dancers from all styles, backgrounds and ages will be selected for the LIVE TO DANCE cast.

When the show moves to its regular time period on Wednesday, Jan. 5, an additional group of dancers from the Dance Dome auditions, who the experts feel deserve a second look, will have one final opportunity to compete in a "dance-off," to earn a coveted spot in the LIVE TO DANCE cast. Those contestants who make it through the "dance-off" will travel to Los Angeles, rounding out the final cast of 18 dance acts.

Starting Wednesday, Jan. 12, the first six dance acts will compete against each other LIVE on CBS with two acts advancing. After a total of three rounds, the six dance acts that have advanced will compete against one another in the grand finale, where they will battle for the right to be crowned LIVE TO DANCE champion and awarded a $500,000 prize.

Paula Abdul will be joined on the panel of experts by Travis Payne and Kimberly Wyatt, both of whom bring an extensive dance and choreography resume to the series. Andrew G´┐Żnsberg is host of the series.

LIVE TO DANCE is based on a format created by Princess Productions and Shine TV and is produced by Reveille. Elisabeth Murdoch, Howard T. Owens, Paula Abdul, James Sunderland, Anthony Dominici and Robin Ashbrook are executive producers.
