0

If you’ve caught any of NBC’s coverage of the Olympics, you’ve more than likely seen a commercial for the network’s new music-driven series, Rise. Rise was created by Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) who serves as the first season’s showrunner and executive producer. Hamilton‘s producer Jeffrey Seller, Flody Suarez, and Michelle Lee are also on board as executive producers.

The cast of Rise includes Josh Radnor, Rosie Perez, Auli’i Cravalho, Damon J. Gillespie, Marley Shelton, Rarmian Newton, Ted Sutherland, Amy Forsyth, Casey W. Johnson, Taylor Richardson, Joseph Tippett, and Shirley Rumierk. Mike Cahill (Another Earth) directed the pilot episode and Rosemary Rodriguez serves as a series director and producer. Danny Mefford is the choreographer, Tom Kitt is the music director, Will Bates is the composer, and Scott Riesett is the music producer.

Rise will make its primetime debut on March 13, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT. The series will air on Tuesdays at 9pm ET/PT.

The Plot: Rise is a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students but the entire working-class town.
