So here it is, your first look at actress-singer Keke Palmer in the upcoming television special Grease Live. As previously reported, Keke will be playing the role of Marty, one of the Pink Ladies, a role that was originally made famous by Empty Nest actress Dinah Manoff.
Grease Live is set to air via Fox on January 31st and expectations are extremely high. NBC recently scored another massive hit with their live showing of The Wiz, which pulled in over 11 million viewers and secured an impressive 3.5 demo.
Fox hopes Grease Live will help them get a foot in the live musical market, which NBC has been dominating for the last few years.
The network just released their first trailer for the special, which you can check out below.
By the way, what did you guys think of The Wiz? I missed it, but plan to catch it soon because it’s airing on Hulu.
