Grease, after massive success as a stage musical and movie, is heading back to TV.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Paramount Pictures is developing a prequel based on the Rydell High characters for the soon-to-launch streaming service HBO Max. But we're not sure if that includes the movie's romantic leads, Danny and Sandy. There will be music: classic songs from the pre-Beatle era alongside original material.
Grease: Rydell High will explore the peer pressures of high school, the horrors of puberty and life in middle America with a modern sensibility.
Grease: Live was staged for FOX TV in 2016 and won five Emmy Awards.
