Netflix have announced plans for a new Motown-themed animated show.

The show follows the success of the Beatles-inspired Beat Bugs, which aired to widespread acclaim on Netflix earlier this year.

The new series will use a series of Motown hits as prompts for the storyline, and will be helmed by writer/director Josh Wakely.

The story loosely follows an 8 year old child name Ben (much like the Michael Jackson song, then) who lives in a city called Motown.

Tantalisingly, Smokey Robinson will act as executive producer, with a host of modern artists putting a new spin on 52 Motown classics.

More than 50 dancers from Union Square’s PMT Dance Studio performed a routine set to Beyoncé’s “Run The World (Girls)” during the Connecticut Sun vs. New York Liberty game on July 17, planning to close the performance with a dance set to a portion of Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us,” instructor Pavan Thimmaiah explained.
