Dancing With The Stars

Are you ready to go ice-dancing with the stars?

ABC's previously announced figure skating spin-off of Dancing with the Stars will now feature ice dancing, BBC Worldwide Productions said.

The as-yet-untitled series will follow a similar format to that of Dancing, which is also produced by BBC Worldwide. Taking a cue from Dancing's first season, the spin-off will start off small, pairing six celebrities with six pros. The show is based on Strictly Ice Dancing, a 2004 Christmas special of Strictly Come Dancing, the British Dancing equivalent.

The show will premiere later this year. A cast has not been determined yet, an ABC rep said.

What do you think of the series? Will it be a hit or suffer the same fate as Fox's Skating with Celebrities? Who would you cast? Should Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir aim for an ice dancing Mirrorball trophy to go with their Olympic gold medals?
