Grease: Live - 2016 - Motion Picture History , Info & More

FOX enrolls at Rydell High with GREASE: LIVE, a one-night musical production of the massively popular crossover musical "Grease." GREASE: LIVE stars Julianne Hough as the angelic "Sandy" - Rydell High's most talked-about newcomer - and Aaron Tveit as bad boy "Danny Zuko." Also tapped to star are Vanessa Hudgens as iconic bad girl "Rizzo," Keke Palmer as the sassy Pink Lady "Marty Maraschino" and Carlos PenaVega as "Kenickie," Danny's tough-guy sidekick. 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.
