"Together we are can provide an almost immediate On Demand experience for one of MTV's most anticipated new series this spring, thereby supporting the value of the platform, and increasing buzz and awareness around the live linear premiere." "We're delighted that our Verizon FiOS TV customers will have exclusive on-demand access to MTV's next great series," said Terry Denson, vice president -- Verizon FiOS TV content and programming.

"Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew" is the first dance competition series showcasing dance crews rather than individual dancers. Week after week, each dance crew will work to show-off their most innovative choreography and sick dance skills. Mario Lopez ("Dancing with the Stars") will host and judges JC Chasez (N*Sync), hip hop sensation Lil Mama, and choreographer Shane Sparks ("You Got Served") will evaluate the dance crews. They won't be the only judges as fans also chime in to determine the two weakest crews each week that will battle for their lives, with only one surviving to dance another day. With a crew eliminated weekly, only the strongest will survive to be crowned "America's Best Dance Crew," winning a stellar cash prize and touring contract.
