In other CBS updates, Paula Abdul has been named an executive producer, creative partner and lead judge for Got to Dance (working title), a new reality-competition series for CBS. She will also serve as coach, mentor and advocate for contestants during the performances and elimination process, providing critical input and guidance while sharing her experience with hopeful contestants. No word yet when the series will air, but it could possibly air in January 2011. The series is based on the British hit that debuted earlier this year and has been a ratings sensation for Britain's Sky 1, making it one of the UK's top-rated pay TV series this season.
