Ryan Murphy is on a roll right now. Following The Politician, Hollywood and Ratched, the mega producer is bringing us yet another Netflix TV gem as part of his deal with the streaming giant. The new series, titled The Prom, is an adaptation of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical and features a massive cast, including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Nicole Kidman, James Corden and more.
What's The Prom about?
It tells the story of four Broadway actors who decide they want to champion a cause to improve their reputations. Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden) are out of work after the musical they're starring in shuts down after just one night. They join up with fellow Broadway stars Angie Dickson (Nicole Kidman) and Trent Oliver (Andrew Rannells) and end up traveling to Indiana to help high school student Emma after they hear that her prom was cancelled because she wanted to go with her girlfriend.
Who stars in Netflix's The Prom?
Everyone! Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells and Ariana Debose, who replaced Ariana Grande, all star. Newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman plays high school student Emma.
When is The Prom being released on Netflix?
It was originally scheduled to drop earlier this year, but was pushed back due to the pandemic. Confirming the new release date, Ryan Murphy announced The Prom will land on the streaming platform on December 11th.
Is there a trailer for The Prom?
Sadly we don't have a trailer yet, but fingers crossed we get one very soon because The Prom sounds a lot like our next TV marathon watch.
