Julianne Hough - Julianne And Derek Hough Developing Ballroom Dancing Show

Actress Julianne Hough is teaming up with her brother Derek to produce a Tv show about the world of competitive ballroom dancing.

The Rock of Ages star and her sibling Derek Hough, who have both enjoyed success on U.S. Tv show Dancing With the Stars, are developing a scripted programme called Blackpool, which will focus on the politics and darker side of the profession.

Julianne tells The Hollywood Reporter, "When you're in the world, you're so invested. It's literally the be-all and end-all. But when you step back from it, you see that obsession with perfection and the fact that the lifestyle that you thought was so glamorous is actually a little shocking."

And although the 24 year old, who struggled with emotional abuse while living in England as a young dancer, plans on incorporating some of her own experiences into the project, she's adamant it won't be autobiographical.

She adds, "We definitely want it to be fictionalised. We're going to start with our experiences in the world and stories that we've either seen or gone through, but it'll be fun to be able to elaborate and fictionalise these characters."

The drama will air on American network Starz, with both stars also signing on to assist with the choreography.
