CoLours goes to 'Battle'


UPDATED 4:58 p.m. PT March 10

Multicultural network CoLours TV, which is in nearly 16 million homes, has greenlighted a hip-hop dance competition series titled "Battle," from Charles Flemings of Brook Entertainment.

The 13-episode series will re-create the street dancing competitions of the 1980s in which groups "battled" against each other to prove which was better in a given "turf." "Battle" is set to premiere in April, according to CoLours executive vp Arthur O. Thomas.
