The cast of Hairspray Live! is led by newcomer Maddie Baillio and includes Harvey Fierstein, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Kristin Chenoweth, Martin Short, and Derek Hough. NBC’s Hairspray Live!will air on December 7, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT and as rehearsals are getting underway, Meron and Zadan teamed up for a conference call to discuss the popular musical, their cast, and what fans of the movie and Broadway musical can expect from this live television event.

 

What’s it been like working with Derek Hough as Corny Collins?

Neil Meron: “Derek is, you know, what you see is what you get. You get somebody that first of all is one of the best dancers in the world, totally charming, totally eager, has a depth of talent, always cooperative, always there. But speaking about talent, it’s also our privilege and honor to have Harvey Fierstein kind of like preserve his iconic performance from Broadway. It’s something that we are thrilled to be able to do. His performance is so strong that it should be preserved and we’re glad to be able to do it.”

Julianne and Derek are set to perform at the Dizzy Feet Foundation’s Celebration of Dance Gala on September 10, as shared by 13-year-old Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler. Maddie is also scheduled to perform that day, and shared a photo collage on her Instagram of the many other dancers who are participating in the celebration. The collage features Maddie, Julianne and Derek, and another Dancing with the Stars professional dancer, Mark Ballas.
