JoJo Siwa is moving from the dance floor to the documentary screen!
Facebook Watch just announced that it has greenlighted a new docuseries starring actress, dancer, singer, influencer, and queer icon JoJo Siwa. According to the show’s description, Siwa “will be joined by her celebrity friends to partake in some crazy fun adventures she’s always wanted to experience but never got the chance.”
The show, titled JoJo Goes, will air on Facebook Watch this summer, and will also be available on Watch Together via Messenger and Instagram video calls.
The series comes after Siwa has been having a huge year and a half where she came out as queer, became the first contestant on Dancing With the Stars to dance with a same-sex partner, finished second place on that show, executive produced Siwa’s Dance Pop Revolution for Peacock, and starred in The J Team, a live-action musical on Paramount+.
"I’m so excited to partner with Facebook Watch for JoJo Goes!" Siwa said. "I will be going on some crazy fun adventures and I can’t wait for my fans to see what new things I try out with some of my best friends! Make sure to check it out."
"JoJo Siwa’s boundless positivity and message of self-love have made her an inspiration to millions who have watched her grow up on stage, tv, and online. This series takes fans along for the ride as soon-to-be 19-year-old JoJo explores all the off-stage passions and quirky paths that haven’t fit into her daily life as a super celebrity," Aliyah Silverstein, the SVP of current programming and executive producer for B17 Entertainment said in a statement. "It’s an entirely new side of JoJo that we are excited to share."
Next up for JoJo is serving as a new judge on Fox’s reality show So You Think You Can Dance. She’ll be joined on the judging panel by former Glee star Matthew Morrison, and former judge Stephen “tWitch” Boss. Cat Deely is once again returning as the host.
