Faizon Love also joins the cast
Step Up is heading back to our screens with a brand new cast of boppers.
Former Glee star Naya Rivera and singer Ne-Yo are set to strap on their dancing shoes for YouTube Red’s new upcoming original series based on the Step Up franchise about aspiring dancers on the road to success. Elf‘s Faizon Love has also joined the cast.
Stars of the original movie (and real-life husband and wife) Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum will executive-produce the drama, which centers around students at Atlanta’s famous High Water Performing Arts School. Rivera will play Collette, a former dancer who now works as an administrator at the school and has a history with the school’s founder, Sage Odom, played by Ne-Yo (The Wiz, World of Dance).
Step Up: High Water will premiere in the fall and will mark YouTube Red’s first big-budget original drama. The series is written and produced by Holly Sorenson (Recovery Road, Make It or Break It).
