Ribeiro – who was most recently seen on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, which he won – previously partnered with Thinkfactory on ABC Family’s 2013 spelling competition series Spell-Mageddon, and is working with the prodco on multiple projects, the company said.

The team’s latest undertaking, Hometown Rebound, will see the actor working with various communities across the U.S. as they set out to improve their towns.

Executive producers on the show include Thinkfactory Media’s Adam ReedAdam Freeman and Leslie Greif, along with Ribeiro and Konrad Leh of the Creative Talent Group.

“I’ve known for a long time that Alfonso’s talent extends well beyond the dance floor, and I am thrilled to be teaming up with him again to bring exciting new series to air,” said Adam Reed, executive vice-president of Thinkfactory Media, in a statement. “America has proven once again that they love him, and we want to keep him right in their hearts where he belongs – both in front of and behind the camera.”

Ribeiro added: “Working with Adam Reed and the team at Thinkfactory Media again is very exciting. The series concepts are incredibly unique and we believe that Thinkfactory’s ability to deliver compelling entertaining series will make the new partnering a success.”
