Mobile-first media platform Quibi has ordered a new travelling dance competition ahead of its launch in April 2020.
The Sauce will see viral dance duo Ayo & Teo (pictured) travelling cross-country looking for today’s hottest dancers. Dancers from 22 teams across 10 cities will battle in street competitions, with one skilled dancer emerging as the winner.
Indie doc prodco The Front is producing the series for Quibi, with Thalia Mavros, Krista Manis and Kadine Anckle serving as executive producers.
Casting is currently underway.
“We’re so excited to host this epic cross-country competition to find the dance squad with the most sauce,” said Ayo & Teo, in a joint statement. “We went from self-taught dancers creating moves in our basement to putting out viral hits and starting global dance challenges, all in the span of 2 years. Now, we get to partner with The Front and Quibi to find the next big dancers with the same talent and potential as us.”
“Supporting artists and sharing their stories in an elevated way is an integral part of The Front’s mission,” added EP and The FRONT founder Thalia Mavros. “Ayo and Teo are incredibly talented, and bring unparalleled expertise and energy to youth dance culture that makes them the perfect hosts for The Sauce. Their sophisticated dance style is matched only by their social media savvy, and we couldn’t be more excited to share their immense creativity with a global audience on Quibi.”
