The Rocky Horror Picture Show remade for network TV

Fox TV has announced that they would remake the Rocky Horror Picture Show for network TV as a two-hour event special, and would be choreographed and directed by Kenny Ortega, director of the three High School Musicals. How do we feel about this? Can the Rocky Horror Picture Show be remade as a film (not talking about the stage version) ? How does the content of Rocky Horror be unsuitable for such event? What are the elements that would work/wouldn’t work for TV?

  • You could talk about how shows that are based on older movies like Bates Motel and Hannibal have done well, and how rocky horror picture show could do the same. – Aaron Hatch 8 years ago
  • You could also look at the success of musicals in recent years too - from Glee and the High School Musicals, to more recent things like Pitch Perfect, and how their popularity could indicate a possible success for this. – Hannah Spencer 8 years ago
