In documents obtained by the blast, Alvin Gray-El filed a federal lawsuit this week against J.Lo, NBC and legendary choreographer Debbie Allen, who has nothing to do with the world dance show. Alvin claims that he came up with the idea for a show called “Let’s Start The Dance” back in 2009. He reportedly claims that he faxed a letter over to Debbie Allen and her team to see if they had any interests in producing the show. He says that he never heard back from them and in 2010 had the show registered with the U.S.
Seven years later, he discovered that “World of Dance” was in the works at NBC and claims he tried to contact the network to let them know about the copyright infringement, however he claims he never heard back.
