Following its debut at D23 Expo 2019, you can now watch the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series trailer online below. The Disney+ series is developed and executive produced by Tim Federle (Ferdinand), alongside showrunner and executive producer Oliver Goldstick (Pretty Little Liars, Ugly Betty). Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush (the original High School Musical trilogy) are also executive producers. Sundance Film Festival-nominated film, television and music video director Tamra Davis (Empire, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) is directing the first three episodes. The choreographer is Zach Woodlee (Glee, Dumplin’).
The 10-episode series picks up nearly 15 years after the original movie aired at the real-life location where it all began: East High. It follows a group of students as they countdown to the opening night of their school’s first-ever production of “High School Musical.” Showmances blossom; friendships are tested while new ones are made; rivalries flare and lives are changed forever as these young people discover the transformative power that only a high school drama club can provide.
Brand-new songs and acoustic “rehearsal room” reinterpretations of songs from the original High School Musical provide the soundtrack for an unlikely group of theater kids who learn “we’re all in this together” when it comes to pulling off an against-all-odds opening night.
The cast includes Joshua Bassett (Stuck in the Middle), Olivia Rodrigo (Bizaardvark), Kate Reinders (Modern Family, Broadway’s Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Sofia Wylie (Andi Mack), Matt Cornett (Bella and the Bulldogs), Dara Reneé (Freaky Friday), Julia Lester (Mom), Frankie Rodriguez (Modern Family), Larry Saperstein (Fan Girl), and Mark St. Cyr (Doomsday).
