Creator Steve Franks Talks PSYCH: THE MUSICAL; Is Broadway Next?
In an in-depth interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Psych creator Steve Franks talked about checking this weekend's two-hour PSYCH: THE MUSICAL off his bucket list, the development of the project over several years, working with Broadway's Anthony Rapp, and what's next for the USA series.
On Rapp, Franks told THR: "We would have never made him audition. If he wanted in, he was in. I didn't meet him until the day he showed up at Ocean Ways Studio, this great facility where Frank Sinatra used to record, where we recorded the vocals. Anthony showed up took the red-eye to fly in -- he had a concert the night before -- to these over-the-top, kind of ridiculous songs. It was interesting to see Anthony, this very serious Broadway star, go down the rabbit hole of what we do. It was a coup on our part to be able to bring him into our hole."
On where Psych will go from here, Franks added: "We've shot out season eight and if season eight is it, that's what it was meant to be. If it can live on in any other capacity, let's talk Broadway."
