Disney orders "Dance Dance Chicago" pilot

Disney Channel is looking to expand its stable of musically themed comedy series with "Dance Dance Chicago."


The cable network has ordered a pilot for "Dance," a contemporary tale of two kids working as back-up dancers on an "American Bandstand"-type show.


The project is now casting, with the pilot eyed for production in January. Comedy veteran Chris Thompson, creator of "The Naked Truth," "Action" and "Ladies Man" and co-creator of "Bosom Buddies," is writing and executive producing.


Disney Channel's roster of music-centered series includes "Hannah Montana," "Jonas" and the animated "Phineas and Ferb." Boy-oriented sibling channel Disney DX is joining the trend with the upcoming "I'm in the Band."
