Netflix is killing it with the original content lately, as is Ryan Murphy with premium shows, including American Horror Story and American Crime Story. The streaming service and the director/producer are teaming up for a Netflix original movie called The Prom, adapted from the Tony-nominated Broadway musical of the same name.
If the star-studded cast is any indication, it’s going to be a good movie. Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Ariana Grande, Keegan-Michael Key, James Corden, Awkwafina, and Andrew Rannels will star in the film, which tells the story of a lesbian student who wants to bring her girlfriend to the school dance in a conservative, middle-America town. The couple is banned from attending, igniting a fight for justice.
The Broadway version has received six Tony nominations, including one for best musical, and will run until Aug. 11.
