BBC Wordwide will be premiering Dancing Brasil, the local adaptation of Dancing With the Stars, on Brazil’s RecordTV.

Produced by RecordTV and Endemol Shine Brazil, in partnership with BBC Worldwide, the primetime version of the popular show will air every Monday evening, beginning in April. It will be hosted by Brazilian superstar Xuca Menghel, and will feature 14 couples — each made up of a famous personality and a professional dancer.

According to a statement made by the company, Dancing Brasil is BBC Worldwide’s first agreement of its kind with Rede Record, a Brazilian Free-to-air TV network.

“We are pleased to start our recently signed production agreement with BBC Worldwide with the local adaptation of a great show like Dancing with the Stars, helping the company meet the growing demand for acclaimed British titles that resonate with Brazilian audiences,” said Juliana Alganaraz, managing director of Endemol Shine Brazil, in a release.

The format license for Dancing with the Stars has been sold to over 50 countries, and over 300 seasons of the format have aired across the globe.
