The Grease Prequel series opens casting calls for lead rollers

Fat: Rise of the Pink Ladies is on its way to Paramount + and now the series is looking for wires to bring to life the origins of the Pink Ladies we saw as Rizzo, Frenchie, Marty, Jan and finally Sandy. But in the prequel series, we get a look at the beginnings of the Pink Ladies and their rise in popularity in the world of Cool and it seems like Paramount + are trying to find their stars!

The series will be written and produced by the creator Annabel Oakes and is a series of 10 episodes. Marty Bowen and Adam Fishbach will executive produce for Temple Hill and Erik Feig will executive produce for PICTURESTART. The series is an exciting insight into the franchise as we only really have Cool and Fat 2 to get rid of.

The log line for the show is as follows:

“Four years before the original fat, before rock’n’roll ruled, before T-Birds were the coolest at school, four full-bodied, outcast girls dare to have fun on their own terms, triggering a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever. “

Casting is looking for “real triple threats (actors / singers / dancers!), Who are 18 years and older to play high school.” Which is a difference from the original movie where John Travolta and Dinah Manoff were the youngest contributors and were in their twenties. The online casting message states:

“We are looking for genuine triple threats that are 18 years or older to play high school. PERFORMERS OF ALL GENDER DECLARATIONS, ALL SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS, ALL BODY TYPES, ALL ETHNISITES, ALL RACES, ALL OPERATIONS, ! WE WANT TO MEET YOU! “

That’s an interesting thing, because Cool has become infamous for its cast looking at their age. Which, when they are all in their late 20s and 30s while filming the movie, means they do not exactly look like they’s high school students. So the fact that they are ser for young artists who still look young enough to play high schools is a promising new aspect of Fat: Rise of the Pink Ladies. And we have to see who led the way for Rizzo!

Get your auditions in and become the new class of Rydell High! And really, who among us did not want to be a Pink Lady when we watched Cool for the first time?
