LA Clippers dance squad to get reality series

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Clippers' dance squad is getting its own reality series.

E! Entertainment said Monday the series that is scheduled to debut early next year will show what it's like to be a member of the squad on and off the court. Eight one-hour episodes of ''L.A. Clippers Dance Squad'' are scheduled to air on the cable network.

The show will take viewers through summer auditions to choose the squad and the dancers' emotions and ambitions.

Among the producers of the series is Cash Warren, husband of actress Jessica Alba and whose father Mike Warren starred at UCLA under basketball coach John Wooden. The show is produced by Mandalay Sports Media, whose co-founder is Peter Guber, a part-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
