Ice skating fans, this one’s for you. ABC has announced that it is launching SKATING WITH THE STARS next month with the all-star cast to be announced on November 2 during the Dancing with the Stars Results Show.

The new series from BBC Worldwide Productions pairs a celebrity with a world class ice skater to compete in front of a live audience in a televised ice skating competition. The skating pairs will be critiqued by a panel of expert judges, receiving a set of scores based on artistry and technique while viewers at home will vote for their favorites, with one couple being eliminated each week.

In the first round of competition, the mood will be tense. Anything can happen when the skating pairs lace up and take to the ice live. After enduring hours of rigorous training, the celebrities will display their best figure skating and ice dancing moves on what is sure to be one of the world’s most spectacular ice rink sets. Danger will hover close each week as the couples are challenged to incorporate various intense moves into their routines, leaving viewers on the edge of their seats.

Skating with the Stars will premiere on ABC Monday, November 22 at 9pm/8 central.
