Randy Jackson's previously announced World Moves reality competition series is reportedly on the move.

MTV has begun production on the tentatively titled Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew, a show executive produced by the American Idol judge and originally set-up by NBC, Daily Variety reported Monday.

NBC announced in May that it would air World Moves, which would pit dance teams from around the world against one another for the opportunity to land an international touring contract, as part its 2007-2008 primetime programming schedule. 

However according to Variety, recently-named NBC Entertainment and NBC Universal Television Studio co-chairman Ben Silverman later decided "not to move forward with the idea," allowing MTV to swoop in.

Despite the new network, Variety reported the show's So You Think You Can Dance-like format will remain largely unchanged, with dance teams of five to seven members converging on Los Angeles.  Once there, the teams will compete each week in live performance episodes with viewers voting for their favorites via text messaging, the Internet or by phone.  One team will be eliminated each week, and the one left standing at the end will be crowned champion.

MTV has yet to announce the show's Idol-like judging panel, a host or the grand prize.  If Jackson's Idol contract is anything like fellow judge Simon Cowell, he'll be unable to appear in the series due to a Fox exclusivity clause -- which is why Cowell has been unable to appear on-screen on America's Got Talent or American Inventor, both of which he executive produces.

MTV plans to air Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew in early 2008, Variety reported.

The series is still being produced by Warner Horizon Television.  Along with Jackson, Joel Gallen, Rob Lee, Howard Schwartz, Karen Schwartz, and Harriet Sternberg will serve as the show's executive producers.
