“Dancing With the Stars” professional dancer Emma Slater is about to be on the TV screen more often.

Slater will be the host of a live TV series called “Hollywood After Dark,” per the press release. The show will be on TV and on the web. According to Robert Blagman, the show will be “the first content project pursued by the [Marketing Worldwide Corporation] family and I am confident this series can jump-start the Marketing Worldwide Media brand and the associated ‘business machine’ behind it.”

Slater will be hosting the show, which is said to be like a “modern-day take” on “Playboy After Dark.” Each show will feature 35-50 celebrities hanging out with one another with microphones on. The show is unscripted.

Creator and executive producer Lauren Hirsch Williams says, “the timing is perfect for a modern-day revamp of the legendary Playboy After Dark. We’re all very lucky that the uber talented and globally loved Emma Slater is ‘thrilled to host it.'”

Slater was the co-host of the “Dancing With the Stars” live tour in 2023 alongside “Bachelorette” Gabby Windey, and she has shared that she has a passion for hosting. Slater called the opportunity to host the tour a dream come true.

Hosting is such a big passion for me and has been for a long time. I can’t wait to be doing more in the near future and I’m excited to dive into some of the opportunities I have coming up! I’m truly so excited!!”
