FREEFORM LAUNCHES COMEDIC SHORT-FORM ORIGINAL
UNSCRIPTED SERIES 'OH MY JOSH!,'
STARRING WORLD-RENOWNED DANCER AND CHOREOGRAPHER JOSH HORNER
JOSH ALSO TO TEACH BEN HIGGINS DANCE MOVES
ON TONIGHT'S EPISODE OF 'BEN & LAUREN: HAPPILY EVER AFTER?'
"Oh My Josh!," an original short-form series surrounding the professional and personal life of Australian dancer and choreographer Josh Horner, is now live on Freeform.com, the Freeform app and Hulu.
Getting up close and personal, this unscripted comedic series delves into the ups and downs of Josh's personal life and career as a choreographer. Over the course of the series, Josh will work with clients who desperately need help with a dance routine for a special occasion. Since Josh is from Sydney, Australia, the show will also chronicle him making friends and dating in LA. Along for the ride is Josh's quirky assistant Jayme, who also is an actress/model and whose OCD can often clash with Josh's ADD, and Josh's mom Cherylynne, who is in constant communication with her little "Joshy" to keep tabs on him while she's in the land Down Under.
Josh will also make an appearance on tonight's episode of "Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?" as he teaches Ben how to dance, so he can surprise Lauren with a special night. Will the master choreographer be able to turn Ben's not-so-great dance moves into a success? "Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?" airs tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST, on Freeform.
"Oh My Josh!" is produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions and Kids At Play. The series is directed by Mark Marraccini and executive produced by Jason Berger and Amy Laslett.
