GREASE: RISE OF THE PINK LADIES

Rise of the Pink Ladies,” a prequel to the popular movie musical Grease, has been granted the go-light by Paramount+! The series will pick up four years after the events of the first film. “Before rock ‘n’ roll ruled before the T-Birds were the coolest in school, four fed-up, misfit girls dare to have fun on their own terms, unleashing a moral panic that will transform Rydell High forever,” according to the show’s concept. Annabel Oakes, the creator of the successful Netflix shows Atypical and Awkward, will executive produce the 10-episode series alongside Marty Bowen and Erik Feig.
