As you may have guessed from the title, the program pays tribute to the iconic 1987 movie, even taking place at the same location that was used as Kellerman’s Lodge.

Contestants will also learn dance routines from the show (like Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's famous lift) instead of creating their own.

According to the report, Stephen "tWitch" Boss will act as host, and so far, contestants include WWE star Brie Bella, Bachelorette fan fave Tyler Cameron, High School Musical's Corbin Bleu and Backstreet Boys member Howie Dorough.

While the latter two have formal training, Bella and Cameron don't — though the reality star has admitted that he enjoys busting a move in his spare time, even showing off his skills during his introduction on Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette.

"I love to dance. I was, like, two classes away from being a dance minor at Wake Forest," he shared. "It’s just what I love to do."

And while his bestie Matt James is currently competing on Dancing With the Stars, the contractor said he would be down to join the show one day as well.

"I would love to do Dancing With the Stars! They just need to hit my line," he shared with E! News last year. "That would be so much fun. I love doing it. I dance just goofing around all the time. My buddies make fun of me, but I still love it."

Meanwhile, Brie Bella's twin sister, Nikki, actually has competed on DWTS, as did Bleu, who came in second place alongside his partner Karina Smirnoff.

Despite the accomplishment, he admitted the process took a toll on him.

"I expected the season to be a lot of hard work," he noted at the time. "Everyone warned me that it’s one of the most time consuming and physically and mentally draining processes to go through. But what you don’t realize is how much goes into it with production."
