Everyone will be doing the time warp on Thursday! Fox will air their updated remake of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s do the Time Warp Again,” and fans will definitely want to watch live. Make sure you know how to tune in.
Those watching on TV simply have to turn to Fox at 8 p.m. EDT on Thursday, Oct. 20. If you have an internet connection, you can go on the Fox website or Fox NOW app to watch the show when “Rocky Horror” airs. However, those online will need log in information from their cable provider. The show will be two hours long, ending at 10 p.m. EDT.
If you don’t have time to watch Rocky come to life on Thursday night, it will be available Friday. The show will be on Fox’s website and app as well as on demand.
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is a remake of the 1975 cult movie. It follows two young lovebirds, Janet (Victoria Justice) and Brad (Ryan McCartan), as their car breaks down and they have to stop at a mysterious residence to get help. They end up at Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Laverne Cox) house, and they discover the sexually ambiguous mad scientist is working on a shocking invention: Rocky (Staz Nair).
Adam Lambert, Reeve Carney, Annaleigh Ashford, Christina Milian, Ivy Levan and Ben Vereen round out the cast. Tim Curry, who originally played Frank-N-Furter, will appear in the remake as the Narrator.
“I’m coming back to the project, which I hold very dear. It’s very exciting,” Curry told People while filming the TV movie. “It will be very interesting because it’s very close to me.”
If you can’t wait until Thursday night, fans can get a bit of a preview from the soundtrack. The new cast recorded all the classic “Rocky Horror” tracks, including “Sweet Transvestite” and “Toucha, Toucha, Toucha Me.” Five songs have been released on iTunes ahead of the premiere, but the entire soundtrack will hit retailers on Friday, Oct. 21.
