Watch Dancing with the Stars season 29, episode 1 live, on TV and online.
Chicago PD actress Anne Heche is part of this season’s DWTS cast, so here’s how to watch Dancing with the Stars online or live tonight for the One Chicago fans who want to see her in the ballroom.
For those who aren’t big reality TV fans, here’s what you need to know: the ABC series pairs up a group of celebrities with professional ballroom dancers, and then pits them against one another in competition. Both judges and TV viewers vote to determine who gets eliminated each week and then ultimately crown a winner, similar to American Idol.
Anne Heche, who recurred on PD as Deputy Superintendent Katherine Brennan, is the first star with a major One Chicago connection to be cast on the show. It might also interest the fandom as it’s the first time she’s ever done a reality series!
Heche will be judged by Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Derek Hough (who also judges on NBC‘s show World of Dance). Tyra Banks (of America’s Next Top Model, which featured Chicago Med star Yaya DaCosta in season 3) is the new host this season.
She’s also up against an eclectic mix of actors, singers and other personalities—you can see the full list in the video below, but they include Backstreet Boys alum A.J. McLean and Catfish host Nev Schulman.

While this is a very long way from playing a Chicago cop, it’s still one of the most popular shows on television, and a chance to see one of our fandom’s alumni in a completely different light. Brennan would probably never consider ballroom dancing (not that she could, as she was being arrested for murder in her last appearance).
ABC hasn’t announced who Heche’s professional partner is yet or what the theme for tonight’s first dances is, so this will be a complete surprise for anybody looking for a fun escape while we wait for our franchise to return.
We’ll have to see if the One Chicago fanbase turns out to support Anne Heche by voting for her on DWTS.
