Fox released the first teaser for its TV reboot of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Following the success of the Fox TV remake of Grease, The Rocky Horror Picture Show TV adaptation will star Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, alongside a cast that includes Adam Lambert, Christina Milian, Victoria Justice, and many more. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Cox said a reporter described her character’s look as a mix between Grace Jones and David Bowie. From the brief teaser, the resemblance is totally accurate.
Directed by Kenny Ortega, the TV re-imagining will be a two-hour special that follows the protagonists Janet and Brad as they happen upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s mansion. The new production of the 1975 cult favorite film finds Frank-N-Furter presenting the birth of Rocky Horror, played by Staz Nair, at a science convention.
Fox’s TV adaptation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show airs in October, just in time for Halloween. Watch the trailer above.
