'Hairspray Live' Adds More Cast Members, Will Feature Songs from Movie Version!

Jennifer Hudson, Harvey Fierstein, Kristin Chenoweth, Derek Hough, and Maddie Baillio walk the red carpet at NBCUniversal’s Press Day during the 2016 Summer TCA Tour held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (August 2) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The stars were at the event to chat about NBC’s upcoming production of Hairspray Live!

During the panel, it was revealed that two original songs written for the musical movie version of Hairspray will be added into the production. Also, unlike previous NBC productions, the action will move outside of the soundstage when the scene calls for the characters to go outdoors.

It was also revealed that Sean Hayes will play Mr. Pinky and Rosie O’Donnell will be playing the gym teacher.

FYI: Kristin is wearing an Alexis dress. Derek is wearing a Ted Baker London suit and shirt with Aldo shoes. Jennifer is wearing a Jonathan Cohen dress, Rupert Sanderson shoes, an M2Malletier clutch, and APM Monaco jewelry.
