John Stamos to Guest Star on ABC's Fairytale Musical Series GALAVANT
John Stamos will soon be bringing his talents back to the small screen.
ABC News has confirmed that the stage and screen actor has signed on to guest star on the network's upcoming fairytale musical series GALAVANT, hailing from Dan Fogelman, Alan Menken, and Glenn Slater.
"We are absolutely thrilled that John Stamos is joining us on the series as Galavant's longtime rival -- a dashing knight who squares off against him once more in a local joust," Fogelman told ABC News this afternoon in a statement. "We've wanted John to do an arc on this show since inception."
GALAVANT is currently slated for a midseason premiere.
Stamos' television credits include "General Hospital," ABC's "Full House," NBC's Emmy Award-winning drama "ER." Stamos produced and starred in ABC's comedy "Jake in Progress" and "Thieves" and appeared in the Emmy & Golden Globe nominated adaptation of "Raisin in the Sun" for ABC. Other notable appearances include NBC's "Law & Order: SVU," HBO's "Entourage" and a multi-episode arc on Fox's hit series "Glee." Stamos has had tremendous success on Broadway having performed opposite James Earl Jones in "The Best Man." He has also appeared in the Tony Award-winning musicals "Hairspray," "Bye Bye Birdie," "Nine" and "Cabaret."
Screenwriter/executive producer Fogelman ("Crazy, Stupid, Love," "Tangled," "Cars") teams up with Broadway and Hollywood award-winning musical team-composer Menken ("The Little Mermaid," "Aladdin," "Beauty and the Beast") and lyricist Slater ("Tangled") - for a musical comedy fairytale of epic proportions. Once upon a time, the dashing hero, Galavant (Joshua Sasse), lost the love of his life, Madalena (Mallory Jansen), to the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson). Now, our fallen hero is ready to take Revenge and restore his "happily ever after." But it won't be without a few twists and turns along the way.
"Galavant" stars Joshua Sasse as Galavant, Timothy Omundson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, Mallory Jansen as Madalena, Karen David as Isabella and Luke Youngblood as Sid.
"Galavant" was written by Dan Fogelman who also serves as executive producer. Executive producers are Alan Menken, Glenn Slater and Chris Koch. "Galavant" was directed by Chris Koch. Abbey C Studios Ltd. produces "Galavant" for ABC Studios.
