Figure Skating Will Return to ABC

Figure skating will continue to appear on TV even though the Winter Olympics have ended.

ABC has reached a multi-year agreement with Disson Skating to broadcast four two-hour ice skating specials starring this year’s Olympic ice dancing champs and recently announced “Dancing with the Stars” contestants, Meryl Davis and Charlie White, as well as Brian Boitano, with other performers and celebrity musical guests being announced at a later date.

Olympic champion and “Dancing with the Stars” Winner Kristi Yamaguchi and three-time U.S. National champion Michael Weiss will host the specials. Each show will feature the sport’s signature lifts, spins and jumps choreographed to live performances of chart-topping hits. Stars who have appeared in Disson specials previously include Michael Buble, Earth Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin, the Goo Goo Dolls, Josh Groban, Jewel, the Jonas Brothers and many others.

The skating events will be taped before a live audience across the country. The first two specials will air in the fall of 2014 with the second half airing in early 2015.
