With the help of world class choreographers, two couples compete to surprise their wedding guests with the best first dance ever. But they’re not just performing in front of stunned family and friends – their big day is made even bigger because they are competing to win a £10,000 prize.
Wendy Rattray, creative director for STV Productions, said: “The concept of First Dance is brilliantly entertaining and a format we’re sure will be popular in the UK and US. This pilot further adds to the diverse range of STV Productions’ work and highlights our successful partnerships with Kinetic Content and GroupM Entertainment.”
The pilot for First Dance was co-developed with US partners Kinetic Content and funded by GroupM Entertainment. First Dance is GroupM Entertainment’s third co-production with STV Productions following Perez Hilton – Super Fan for ITV2 earlier this year and psychological thriller The Poison Tree, which airs on ITV1 in December.
The one hour pilot will be used by STV Productions’ creative partners Kinetic Content to sell the new format in the US.
Richard Foster, managing director, GroupM Entertainment, adds, “We’re always looking at ways of launching new IP into the market and this pilot is a great way to do that. We’re also delighted to be furthering our relationship with both STV and Kinetic.”
The pilot, in association with GroupM Entertainment, will be shown on STV in November.
