Next up is ‘Hairspray Live!’ – which hits the network on December 7th and stars Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande. Newcomer Maddie Baillio will take on the iconic role of Tracy Turnblad.
The special follows recently broadcast blockbusters ‘The Wiz,’ ‘Peter Pan,’ and ‘The Sound of Music.’ [Rival station FOX also helped re-ignite the remake trend with their take on ‘Grease’.]
There may be three months to go before ‘Hairspray’ arrives on the box. Yet, NBC are firing up the promotional machine earlier with a first look teaser.
