Given Flirty Dancing will air simultaneously in all time zones, the show will debut on the West Coast at 5PM PT.

Following its special premiere, Flirty Dancing will then air weekly in the Wednesdays 8PM ET/PT time period beginning January 1.

Actress, dancer and former World of Dance host Jenna Dewan will host the series.

Flirty Dancing will feature a mix of performance and blind dating, as singles look to find their match through dancing chemistry.

In the new series, complete strangers are each taught half of a dance routine and then meet for the first time on a blind date at a beautiful location, where they will dance without speaking a word.

Singles will perform a different choreographed dance with each of two potential love interests, before choosing the one with whom he or she has the strongest connection.

"Will it be love at first dance?" Fox teases of the new show, which is based on the hit UK series of the same name.

"In this romantic approach to dating, these singles will push themselves out of their comfort zones in the hope of being swept off their feet."

While the singles may not all be professional dancers, the choreography will tell a story reflective of their personal journeys to find love, while also providing clues to their partner's personality.

"Flirty Dancing is a truly unique format -- it's unlike anything we've ever seen before. It's fun, fresh and romantic, and broadens the dating format far beyond its traditional boundaries," Fox reality chief Rob Wade said in a statement.

"Jenna is our dream host. She knows all about how powerful connection and chemistry can be on the dance floor. So there really is no one better to help guide these singles in their search for love."

Fox had announced the pickup of Flirty Dancing in early October.

Flirty Dancing is being produced by Second Star, which is part of Objective Media Group and All3Media America. Deborah Sargeant, Jilly Pearce, and Mike Yurchuk are serving as executive producers.
