The 1987 classic Dirty Dancing will be heading to the small screen through a new partnership with ABC and Lionsgate TV, with a new three-hour musical adaptation starring Abigail Breslin as Baby. Deadline reports that the project is expected to get an official green light from ABC after one more role is cast, most likely the Johnny Castle role, originally played by Patrick Swayze. It isn't known if the production is close to casting their Johnny Castle yet.
Unlike NBC's The Wiz Live!, which aired last week, and Fox's upcoming Grease: Live, ABC isn't planning a live rendition of Dirty Dancing. This musical adaptation will be taped prior to the broadcast, much like Fox's upcoming The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event, which is slated to debut sometime next year. Since ABC hasn't officially given a green light yet, it isn't known when production will begin at this time.Read More
