DanceOn – the multi-platform entertainment focused digital media network celebrating music and dance in pop culture – in partnership with Mommy & Me Entertainment, and Verizon’s mobile-first platform go90, have given the greenlight to a brand new docuseries titled “Raising Heaven,” which is set to premiere on Monday, October 24, on Verizon’s go90 mobile video platform.
The series will follow six-year-old Heaven King and her mother, Tianne, as the two navigate their way through the dance industry in New York City. In addition, King will manage the burgeoning career of her daughter and YouTube star Heaven while attempting to ensure she remains a normal six-year-old. Heaven’s dance to Silento’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” has received more than 175 million video views, making it the top trending video of 2015.
“Audiences fell in love with Heaven and Tianne through their many breakout dance videos,” said DanceOn CEO Amanda Taylor in a statement. “We are thrilled to be giving fans this exciting original series that invites them into the inspiring and dynamic lives of the King family.”
“Heaven is my number one priority and I can’t wait to show the love and passion we share for family, friends, and, of course, dance,” mother Tianne said in a statement.
Heaven and Tianne have released several viral dance videos for songs by Beyonce, Fifth Harmony, and more. The two also appeared together on “The Ellen Degeneres Show.”
DanceOn’s Jennifer Stander and Christine Cavalieri serve as executive producers on the series alongside Mommy & Me Entertainment’s Tianne King, Heaven King and Willie “Prophet” Stiggers.
DanceOn is a go90 content partner and is slated to develop more than 25 original series for the platform through 2017. DanceOn’s parent company, izo, says its creator network has accounted for five billion lifetime views from an audience of 88 million followers and fans.
