Fox's Rocky Horror Picture Show to premiere in October
Fans of The Rocky Horror Picture Show are in for a treat this Halloween. The Fox adaptation of the cult classic, starring Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, is set to debut just in time for the spooky holiday.
After releasing a new trailer on Thursday and showing the first 25 minutes of the TV movie at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, Fox announced that The Rocky Horror Picture Show will premiere on Thursday, October 20 at 8 p.m. ET.
Joining Cox in her “fierce” performance as the lingerie-clad Frank-N-Furter are Victoria Justice (Victorious) as Janet, Ryan McCartan (Liv & Maddie) as Brad, Christina Milian (Grandfathered) as Magenta, and Reeve Carney (Penny Dreadful) as Riff-Raff. American Idol alum Adam Lambert is set to play delicious biker Eddie while Rocky Horror legend Tim Curry takes on the role of the Criminologist.
Watch EW’s full interview with the cast, above, for their thoughts on paying homage to the original film, plus “orgasmic alien fireworks” during their version of “Time Warp.”
