After hearing that Julianne Hough, Carly Rae Jepsen, Aaron Tveit, Keke Palmer, Vanessa Hudgens, Kether Donohue and Carlos PenaVega would be starring in Fox’s musical, GREASE: LIVE!, we had trouble containing our excitement. And now that the network just released the very first promo video, featuring the entire cast, we’re pretty much dying. Watch it here!
Fox’s press release, which was provided to HollywoodLife.com along with the video, states the following:
GREASE:LIVE will reintroduce and reimagine some of the show’s most memorable moments, great music and timeless love story to an entirely new generation. In this live television adaptation of the musical classic, the beginning of senior year means the end of Danny and Sandy’s summer romance – until Sandy unexpectedly transfers to Danny’s high school. With their friends pulling them in different directions, it’s up to Danny and Sandy to stay hopelessly devoted as they make their way from Rydell High to a new frontier.
The live event stars Julianne Hough (“Safe Haven,” “Rock of Ages”) as the angelic “Sandy” – Rydell High’s most talked-about newcomer – and Aaron Tveit (“Graceland,” “Les Miserables”) as bad boy “Danny Zuko.” Also tapped to star are Vanessa Hudgens (Broadway’s “Gigi,” “Spring Breakers”) as iconic bad girl “Rizzo”; Keke Palmer (SCREAM QUEENS, “Masters of Sex”) as the sassy Pink Lady “Marty Maraschino”; Carlos PenaVega (“Big Time Rush”) as “Kenickie,” Danny’s tough-guy sidekick; multi-Platinum Grammy® Award-nominated singer and songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen as iconic Pink Lady “Frenchy”; Kether Donohue (“You’re The Worst”) as Pink Lady “Jan”; David Del Rio (“Spare Parts,” “The Troop”) as T-Bird “Putzie; Jordan Fisher as “Doody”; and Andrew Call as “Sonny.”
