This is the 'Step Up' series you didn't know you wanted
Fullscreen may have launched its SVOD platform on April 26, but it’s already making moves. Actually, it’s making Making Moves, a new dance drama that has a Step Up: The TV Show kind of vibe — and that’s a good thing.
The series, which premieres on May 25, follows aspiring dancer Ethan (Patrick Cook) as he moves to Los Angeles to launch his career. As you can see in the exclusive trailer above, the digital world proves to make the process even more challenging — yes, that means dance battles are afoot (you get it) — but at least he has his cousin Sammie (Raychel Weiner) and her crew to support him. Oh, and he has his killer moves, of course. Let’s not forget those.

Fullscreen is available via iPhone, iPad, select Android Phones and Chromecast for $4.99 per month. Other programs on the SVOD network include Electra Woman & Dyna Girl and Paul Scheer’s Filthy Preppy Teen$.
