Unlike its recent prime-time predecessors, Rocky Horror will not be a live broadcast. Filming on the production is already complete.
Kenny Ortega directs and choreographs Rocky Horror along with Tony Testa. It is executive-produced by Lou Adler, Gail Berman and Ortega.
The brand-new production is based upon the original screenplay by Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien with lyrics and music by O’Brien.
Rocky Horror Picture Show, according to Fox, follows “sweethearts Janet (Victoria Justice, Victorious) and Brad (Ryan McCartan, Liv & Maddie, Heathers the Musical), who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox, Orange is the New Black) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious mad-scientist, is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of Rocky Horror – a muscle-bound specimen created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.”
