I'm watching this and not sure what I think about it. It's definitely star-studded... and it's got the right lines ("Nobody puts Baby in a corner"). And it's from the choreographer of "Hamilton".
I actually think Abigail Breslin is perfect for this. I guess I just have to see more of the new guy... Colt Prattes. I know it's not fair to judge him by Patrick Swayze standards, but..... I'm having trouble letting go.
Here's the official info --
Abigail Breslin, Debra Messing, Bruce Greenwood, Nicole Scherzinger, Sarah Hyland, Tony Roberts, Katey Sagal and Billy Dee Williams, along with rising stars Colt Prattes and J. Quinton Johnson, headline the stellar cast in a new adaptation of the global pop-cultural phenomenon “Dirty Dancing,” premiering WEDNESDAY, MAY 24 (8:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. The special three-hour filmed musical event features the story from the beloved 1987 romantic drama and instant movie classic told from a fresh perspective, diving deeper into the iconic characters, showcasing their progression and tackling social themes like race, women’s rights and the socio-economic division in the country at that time.
