Dancing With Myself

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal and actress Liza Koshy join international superstar Shakira as creators on Dancing with Myself, NBC‘s newest dance-challenge series. A premiere date for the hourlong series will be announced in the near future.

Inspired by the millions tuning in to watch the latest dance crazes on social media, Dancing with Myself will see a group of everyday people compete each week in a series of high-energy dance challenges designed and demonstrated by the show’s celebrity creators Shakira, Liza, and Shaquille. Isolated in their own pods, contestants have a short time to learn the new routines, add their unique flair, and perform their hearts out in front of a live studio audience. As each round of the competition progresses, the creators on the judging panel provide instant feedback and choose their favorites to advance, along with the audience picks. But ultimately, it’s the studio audience that decides who’s the best dancer of the night and gets to take home the cash prize.

Shakira, Liza, and Shaquille will perform the new dance challenges created specifically for the show, which the contestants will have to tackle.  They will also enlist the talents of guest celebrities who will submit their own challenges.

As an NBA Hall of Famer, longtime sports commentator, entrepreneur and spokesperson, Shaq‘s larger-than-life personality has captured the hearts of millions for years. His dance moves have become a regular trending topic on social media.

Co-creator, executive producer, and star of her own YouTube Originals series Liza on Demand, and seen recently co-hosting “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Special,” Koshy‘s humor and relatability to her legion of followers brings a fresh perspective to the lighthearted competition.

Model, actress and on-air correspondent Camille Kostek will join the trio as host. She began her career as an NFL professional cheerleader, performing routines at international events and teaching youth clinics. Kostek originally gained international prominence after landing the cover for the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine in her rookie year alongside Tyra Banks. Kostek is passionate about using her platform to continue spreading self-love and inner strength through her #nevernotdancing social initiatives, where she encourages fans to express body positivity & self-acceptance through dance. In her role as host, Camille will also demonstrate new dance challenges and perform with the other creators. Dancing with Myself is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, a division of Universal Studio group, and Irwin Entertainment. John Irwin, Dave Kuba, and Eli Frankel executive produce for Irwin Entertainment. Tina Nicotera Bachman, Ben Thursby-Palmer, Jaime Levine and Shakira also executive produce. The series is licensed by NBCUniversal Formats, a division of Universal Studio Group.

Million Dollar Listing: Ryan’s Renovation

BRAVO GETS TO WORK WITH FOUR-EPISODE LIMITED SERIES “MILLION DOLLAR LISTING: RYAN’S RENOVATION” ON JUNE 3RD AT 10:15PM ET/PT  

Bravo brings Greek traditions to Brooklyn in the new limited series Million Dollar Listing: Ryan’s Renovation premiering Thursday, June 3 at 10:15pm ET/PT. After purchasing a multi-million-dollar townhouse for their expanding family, Ryan Serhant and wife, Emilia, gut the newly acquired 7,900 square foot home to create the home of their dreams with enough room for their big Greek family. In each episode, viewers will see the transformation of the constantly evolving townhouse, with more than a few hiccups along the away.

While the vision for the vast, five-floor property started as a home for daughter Zena to grow up in, it’s expanded into an inn for the couples’ extended family. Embracing Emilia’s very large Greek family, they are building out the basement level as a suite for Ryan’s mother-in-law…but with mom comes dad, sister, brother, and the rest of the family. Since everyone wants a room, everyone wants their opinions heard. With so many voices chiming in, the Greek chorus starts to sound like chaos.  

In a renovation of this magnitude, there are always bumps and curveballs, including COVID-postponements, elevator installations, questioned decisions, and millions spent over budget. In an empty, concrete shell of a property, can Ryan see a forever home to grow old in, or will the chaotic, expensive construction make an unexpected multi-million dollar offer worth considering?     

 Watch a sneak peak right here

Million Dollar Listing: Ryan’s Renovation is produced by World of Wonder with Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, Tom Campbell, Nick Prescott and Kevin Maynard serving as Executive Producers.

Shahs of Sunset Returns

ALL THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD FOR BRAVO WHEN “SHAHS OF SUNSET” RETURNS ON SUNDAY, MAY 16 AT 8PM ET/PT

Shahs of Sunset” premieres on Sunday, May 16 at 8pm ET/PT on Bravo  

Returning for season nine: Reza FarahanMercedes “MJ” JavidMike ShouhedGolnesa “GG” GharachedaghiDestiney Rose, and Nema Vand

Friend London Laed joins the loud-and-proud crew for this season’s wild ride  

View the season trailer here

Shahs of Sunset’s new season will not disappoint! With the dust finally settling after last year’s devastating fallout, Rezafinds himself feeling ready to dip his toe in the water of reconciliation with his best friend of over 30 years, MJ. And while his relationship with husband Adam is stronger than ever, his friendship with his “brother” Mike is called into question when rumors about Mike’s bad-boy behavior start to swirl. In addition, after a challenging year for MJ, she finds herself in yet another difficult situation trying to make amends with Reza who still has a restraining order against her husband, Tommy. Despite this, the two vow to begin the journey towards forgiveness in hopes of healing their friendship and bringing everyone back together again.

Mike and his girlfriend Paulina’s “perfect” relationship is put to the test when cracks in their union are revealed to the group. Landing himself in the hot seat, Mike ignites another scandal that both tests his own bond with Reza and threatens to break up Reza and GG’s newly reformed friendship. After a long and difficult journey to motherhood, GG is thrilled to introduce her beautiful son Elijah to the world. She proves to be an unexpected unifier and voice of reason among her friends, helping them communicate their hurt feelings and hopefully let go of past grievances. The true test comes when she must apply this new perspective to her own friendship with MJ.

After Nema’s business ventures were hit hard by the pandemic, he faces a crossroad when he is forced to make some difficult decisions. While his relationships with MJ and Mike remain stronger than ever, Nema navigates an uphill battle to repair his friendships with Reza, Destiney and GG in the hopes of bringing his “family” back together. MJ’s new Persian friend London is a welcome breath of fresh air. As a life coach, London has the unique ability to help her newfound friends through difficult situations. When her strategies begin to wear thin, however, London is put to the ultimate test on a group trip where she needs to do more than dole out pep talks if she wants to keep up with the rambunctious crew.

Destiney moves out of her high-rise apartment and into an adorable house across the street from a very familiar face. Still reeling from the chaos of last year, she works to find peace with MJ as she strengthens her bonds with Reza and GG. When Paulina confides in Destiney about relationship issues with Mike, she finds herself entangled in yet another conflict.

“Shahs of Sunset” is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions with Ryan Seacrest serving as executive producer & Truly Original with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Julie “Bob” Lombardi, Apryl Richards, Chaz Morgan serving as executive producers, and Joe Van Ek, Patrick McCabe and Pyongson “Sunny” Yim as co-executive producers.

“My Brother’s Keeper” was directed by Kevan Otto (“A Question Of Faith”, “Forgiven”) and written by US Army Veteran Ty Manns (“A Question Of Faith”, “The 5th Quarter”). The film stars TC Stallings (“War Room”, “A Question Of Faith”), Joey Lawrence (“Melissa & Joey”, “Blossom”, “Hawaii Five-0”), Robert Ri’chard (“Coach Carter”, “Empire”), and Keshia Knight Pulliam (“The Cosby Show”).

“It was so encouraging that many theaters across the US re-opened their theaters with ‘My Brother’s Keeper,’ a desperately needed story of hope,” shares Manns. “It is also an incredible honor that the film was able to play on military bases and at the National Infantry Museum. We pray that, as the film becomes available to larger audiences through home entertainment, the story continues to give encouragement to those struggling with issues of PTSD, forgiveness, and loss. A reminder that, no matter what the situation, there is always hope.”

Film Synopsis:  

“My Brother’s Keeper” shares the story of returning war veteran SFC Travis Fox (TC Stallings) who has one more battle to fight–PTSD.  Fox and his best friend SFC Ron “Preach” Pearcy (Joey Lawrence) are in their 6th combat deployment when Preach and his entire Ranger platoon are killed in a deadly improvised explosive device attack. Travis returns to his hometown to settle the affairs of his parents who had passed away years before. In searching for answers about his parents, he also discovers a new obstacle in PTSD. He finds support from church counselor, Tiffany Robertson (Keshia Knight-Pulliam) and slowly begins to rediscover his faith in God, until he discovers a secret. Travis uncovers a secret hidden by his best friend Donnie Berry (Robert Ri’chard) that threatens his new-found faith, restores his guilt, and causes him to consider the unthinkable.

Grande, a powerhouse vocalist whose international fan base of “Arianators” has enabled her to rapidly become one of the biggest pop superstars of our generation, will be joined by returning iconic coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton, along with host Carson Daly, on the four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series.

With her most recent album, “Positions,” recently breaking the record for most songs to debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and cementing her as Spotify’s most-streamed female artist of the past decade, Grande, a self-proclaimed fan of “The Voice,” claims a red chair at a pivotal point in her career.

At age 27, she has delivered five platinum-selling albums and surpassed 35 billion streams – she’s Spotify’s most-streamed female artist of the past decade – while rapidly becoming one of the biggest pop stars of our generation with her powerhouse vocals and unmatched presence both on stage and with her fans.
