Disney Channel Orders Dance Competition Series ‘Disney Fam Jam’

Production to Begin in November

“Disney Fam Jam,” which is described as a family dance competition series, has received a straight-to-series order at Disney Channel. The competition series is inspired by dancer and choreographer Phil Wright’s “The Parent Jam” dance classes, which are streamed online.

The logline: Each episode of “Disney Fam Jam” will feature two families hitting the floor in three unique rounds of dance battles to see which family will be crowned “Disney Fam Jam” Champs. The series will have a team of mentors overseeing each dance round while a studio audience of families cheers them on.

“Disney Fam Jam” is a production of Matador Content. The series is executive produced by Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin (“Lip Sync Battle”), Irene Dreayer (“The Suite Life of Zack & Cody”) and Phil Wright. James Sunderland (“Lip Sync Battle,” “America’s Got Talent”) will serve as showrunner.
