Lifetime spins off ‘Dance Moms’

New version of reality series set in Miami

Lifetime is turning its hit reality series “Dance Moms” into a franchise. The net has greenlit six episodes of “Dance Moms: Miami,” focusing on Florida’s Starts Dance Studio and the mothers of that studio’s young clientele.

“‘Dance Moms” quickly became a stand-out hit for Lifetime last year that we knew would be perfect to build out and franchise into other series,” said Lifetime prexy and g.m. Nancy Dubuc.

Series is produced by Collins Avenue, which also produces the show’s flagship iteration. Exec producers are Jeff Collins, Bryan Stinson and John R. Corella.

“Dance Moms” holds the distinction of skewing youngest among the net’s offerings, with a median age of 37.
