REVIEW: THE LXD Season
1 & 2
OVERVIEW: Called “groundbreaking” (New York Times), a “must see” (Entertainment Weekly) and “jaw droppingly amazing” (New York Post), the epic adventure THE LXD: Seasons 1 & 2 bursts onto DVD April 12, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Created by acclaimed director Jon M. Chu (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D) and produced by Chu and Hieu Ho in partnership with Agility Studios, THE LXD (The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers) became an online phenomenon and instant success when it debuted on Hulu.com, regularly ranking as the #1 most popular video and the site’s most popular program in the action and adventure channel. The critically-acclaimed series has also garnered numerous industry accolades including NATPE’s Digital Luminary Award for Best Original Content and Ad Age’s Media Vanguard Award for Best Web Series.
THE LXD employs the hugely popular and visually stunning culture of dance battles intertwined with a cinematic narrative to chronicle the journey of seemingly ordinary people who discover they have extraordinary powers and must choose their place in a heroic conflict between good and evil. The scripted adventure is told largely through dance and features some of the world’s best performers showcasing phenomenal moves in a wide variety of dance styles including Harry Shum, Jr (“Glee”), Luis Rosado (Step Up 3D) and Chadd Smith (Step Up 3D). “So poetic that it was unreal”
