Dan Fogelman and composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) have combined their talents with lyricist Glenn Slater (Tangled) for ABC’s offbeat new musical-comedy “Galavant”. From ABC’s description:
From the brilliant creator of Crazy, Stupid, Love and Tangled and the genius musical talent behind award-wining songs from Disney classics Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas comes Galavant, a four-week musical comedy extravaganza.
From Dan Fogelman and Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken comes a spectacular new television production with guest stars Ricky Gervais, Weird Al Yankovic, John Stamos, Rutger Hauer and Hugh Bonneville, Galavant is an epic 4-week long adventure, comedy, romance and storybook tale of a legendary hero. Go behind-the-scenes on the making of this international production set to premiere on Sunday, January 4th 8|7c on ABC.
Galavant shows influences of “Monty Python” and “When Things Were Rotten,” “Galavant” largely overcomes the challenges that have traditionally bedeviled TV musicals with rambunctious energy, cheeky lyrics and music, and — significantly — a half-hour format, thus condensing the need to create songs into a manageable task. Granted, this ABC series is so unlike anything else on the network’s lineup that the only lead-in the network could think of, ultimately, was itself, airing back-to-back episodes. Whether this inspired silliness has legs beyond musical-theater geeks and TV critics is anybody’s guess, but “Galavant” hits the ground running.
Created by Dan Fogelman and Alan Menken. Starring Joshua Sasse, Timothy Omundson, Vinnie Jones, Mallory Jansen, Karen David and Luke Youngblood. Premiere date January 4th, 2015. Return to Thumbnail View.
