Musical chairs and ballet will both continue to be part of The CW schedule. The network has given second season pick-ups to two of its reality shows.
The CW Network announced second season orders for two of its new reality series, Oh Sit! And Breaking Pointe. The pickups for the “amped-up musical chairs competition” and the docu-series set in the world of ballet were announced by Mark Pedowitz, president, The CW.
Here are the network descriptions of the two shows”
“Oh Sit! pits 12 thrill-seeking daredevils head to head, racing through five physically demanding, obstacle course-style eliminations, as they compete to claim a chair, to the sounds of a live band and guest musical artists. At the end of the hour, only one contestant will be left sitting triumphant to seize the cash prize. Oh Sit! is created and executive produced by Phil Gurin (“The Singing Bee,” “Shark Tank,” “Weakest Link”), Richard Joel and Deena Dill. The series is from The Gurin Company and 405 Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television.
“Breaking Pointe goes behind the stage curtain for an intense, unfiltered look at one of the most competitive ballet companies in the country, Ballet West, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Featuring beautiful and striking on-stage performances, and the arduous journey to the titles of Prima Ballerina and her male counterpart Premier Danseur, Breaking Pointe leaves no bun undone. Viewers follow these young women and men, as they navigate life, working to find a perfect balance between their personal relationships and their unrelenting desire to be the absolute best ballet dancers in the world. Beneath the beauty and glamour of the dance and costumes is a gritty dog-eat-dog world of extreme athleticism, focus, dedication, passion, pressure and, of course, the hunt for the unattainable…perfection. Breaking Pointe is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. Executive producers for BBC Worldwide Productions are Izzie Pick Ashcroft (“Dancing with the Stars”) and Jane Tranter (“Top Gear,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Torchwood”).”
The CW said premiere dates will be announced at a later time.
