The Duchess of York, 60, reportedly shot a pilot for Fox’s all-new TV show, Dancing with Horses. (Think Dancing with the Stars…but instead of celebrities pairing up with professional dancers, they team up with horses.)
Ferguson will serve on a panel of judges, who are tasked with critiquing each performance. According to producer Claudia Rosencrantz (Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, Hell’s Kitchen), Ferguson brought a royally positive energy to the set.
“She was a judge, and she was wonderful to work with,” she told Deadline.
The pilot was shot in the U.K., which allowed for producers to enlist highly trained horses from Britain and France. Dancing with Horses will feature celebrities learning choreographed dances and then performing the moves alongside their four-legged partner. Although the show hasn’t been picked up for more episodes, it sounds like something we’d feel obligated to watch. (Whether we like it or not.)
Rosencrantz continued, “It’s been eight years in my head trying to get those horses dancing. It’s literally the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. It’s like Dancing with the Stars but your partner is a horse and it is an absolutely, exquisite, complicated, wonderful show.”
Dancing with Horses isn’t what we expected for Ferguson’s reality TV debut. But hey, we’ll take what we can get.
