The first hand-jiving, toe-tapping promo for Grease: Live is here!
The FOX live musical event stars Julianne Hough and Aaron Tveit as Sandy and Danny (famously played by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta) and the pair are featured in the new look at the special, along with the rest of the Rydell High crew.
Along with Hough and Tveit, Grease: Live stars 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 and Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush) as Kenickie, Danny’s tough-guy sidekick.
Take a look at the first promo for the special, and read a description via FOX, below!
Featuring a young ensemble cast, 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. Can Danny maintain his bad-boy image as the coolest member of the T-Birds, once he and Sandy start going together, and can Sandy remain a good girl after she joins the Pink Ladies? With their friends Rizzo and Kenickie 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.
Grease: Live airs Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016 (7:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
