Throng can exclusively reveal that another TVNZ show is headed to Mediaworks.

Plans are well underway to bring Dancing with the Stars to TV3, now undoubtedly the home of the big reality formats on New Zealand television.

Dancing with the Stars last aired on TV One in 2009. In 2013, Great Southern Television picked up the rights after TVNZ dropped the series in 2010. A spokesperson for Great Southern Television told Throng today that they had pitched a revamped version of the show to TVNZ but it was turned down due to cost. A similar pitch was then made to Mediaworks which resulted in the production company relinquishing the rights after a joint venture wasn’t commercially viable.

Multiple sources have confirmed to Throng that TV3 are now producing Dancing with the Stars in-house.

Mediaworks weren’t yet ready to make a statement about the series when I spoke to them today. Continue reading »
