Jenna Dewan Tatum wants to see your dance moves!

The dancer-turned-actress-turned semi-professional lip syncer (come on, you know you still have her and hubby Channing Tatum's episode of Lip Sync Battle saved on your DVR) is producing a brand new dance competition series for NBC, E! News has confirmed. She'll serve as judge and mentor on the series, which NBC describes as "a fresh take on the dance competition genre"—and don't worry, her husband and fellow accomplished dancer is involved too.

Dewan Tatum producing the show alongside her partner Meegan Kiernan and Endemol Shine North America, with husband Tatum, Peter Kiernan and Reid Carolin also serving as executive producers. NBC has ordered six episodes of the new series, the first show for her production company, Purple Cup Productions.

While Channing won't be a judge on the show, he will appear on screen, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which originally reported the news of the project.

As you definitely already know (but we'll remind you anyway because it makes us swoon every time we think about it), the couple met when they starred in the seminal 2006 dance movie, Step Up. They're parents to daughter Everly, 2.

Dewan Tatum, who began her career as a backup dancer (for artists including Janet Jackson and Christina Aguilera), is no stranger to dance competitions, having guest judged and performed on So You Think You Can Dance several times throughout the years. She currently appears as Lucy Lane on CBS' Supergirl.

(E! and NBC are part of the NBCUniversal family.)
