ABC's new 'Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann' to premiere January 7


By Christopher Rocchio, 10/27/2007 

ABC has announced Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann, a new reality competition series that will follow Dancing with the Stars judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as they lead their respective teams of singers and dancers against one another for home viewer votes, will premiere on Monday, January 7 at 8PM ET/PT.

Unlike their hands-off judging roles on Dancing with the Stars, Tonioli and Inaba will serve as Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann's coaches and choreographers, with each choosing contestants who can both dance and sing to join their respective teams -- "Team Bruno" and "Team Carrie Ann." 

Tonioli and Inaba will then teach their respective teams new routines from numerous dance styles.  Once the teams start performing, home viewers will have the opportunity to vote whether Tonioli or Inaba's Dance War team did better each week.  The losing coach will then have to eliminate a member of his or her troupe based on viewer votes.

Instead of airing weekly performance and results shows, Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann will -- similar to how ABC handled Dancing with the Stars' first season -- broadcast voting results at the beginning of each week's episode. 

Dancing with the Stars' second-season celebrity champ Drew Lachey will host Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann

The show is based on the U.K.'s Dance X reality series, which premiered in July on BBC1 and featured Tonioli serving as a coach and choreographer alongside Arlene Phillips -- who like Tonioli, also serves as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing, the original U.K. version of Dancing with the Stars.

Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann will air in Dancing with the Stars' Monday night performance episode time period and fill ABC's broadcast void between Dancing with the Stars currently airing Fall 2007 fifth edition and Spring 2008 sixth edition.
