MUMBAI: With an aim to give more space and importance to fiction programming, Star Plus redefined its fiction programming by airing its primetime shows on all seven days from Monday to Sunday since February. All the shows between the 8.00 pm to 10.30 pm slots were aired on Saturdays and Sundays as well. The channel wanted to aggressively promote and back its fiction programming and this is why its reality show Nach Baliye season 8 has been kept on hold for at least two months.

Also the channel had already extended its early primetime slot by stretching all the shows slotted between 5 pm to 7.30 pm to all seven days. Mohi – Ek Khawab Ke Khilne Ki Kahani, Mere Agne Mein, Suhani Si Ek Ladki, Saath Nibhana Saathithya  and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.

However starting 2 July, Star Plus will revive its non-fiction programming with its new offering Dance + season 2. The talent hunt produced by Frames Productions will be aired on Saturday and Sunday at the 8 pm time band. 

Speaking with Indiantelevision.com, Frames Production founder Ranjeet Thakur said, “We received a good response for season one even though it was our first experience with the show. This time around, the second season will take the show to a higher level. The talent in this country is exceptional and audiences will see that in this season.” 

For this season the makers have roped in talented choreographer Remo D’Souza who will don the hat of a super judge. Moreover, the show will have three mentors Dharmesh Yelande, Shakti Mohan and Punit Pathak who will be teaching the contestants and choreographing the acts. “This season we have Punit in the show as Sumeet Nagdev has some other engagements so he said no for this season”, informed Thakur.

The makers have done auditions in 20 cities including Lucknow, Jaipur, Ranchi, Assam and all the metros and mini metros cities. 

Dance+ will be a 26-episode show of one hour duration each. “There will be no change in the format as such, except we are moving to a one hour show on Saturday and Sunday, while during the earlier season it was a two hour show only on Sunday.” 

The channel has roped in Hyundai as the presenting sponsor and co-powered by Cera and Oppo. 

Star Plus’ new non-fiction offering, Dance + season 2  will be pitched against Zee TV’s  Tashan-e-ishq, Balaji’s new show on Colors Kawach at 8 pm on Saturday and Sunday, Sony TV’s Aadlat, Life OK’ s Savdhaan India and Sab TV’s Tarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma.
