From the producer of Hamilton and the producer of Friday Night Lights and Parenthood comes Rise, based on a true story and starring Josh Radnor, Auli'i Cravalho and Rosie Perez.
Inspired by a true story, a working-class community is awakened when its high school theater program takes on an unconventional new leader.
As dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli takes over the lagging department, he encourages his students to unleash their creativity and explore new means of self-expression. But even though the students discover talents and ambitions they never knew they had, not everyone in town is thrilled. Upset by challenges brought by change, enraged faculty and skeptical parents contest Mr. Mazzu's efforts. But with passionate fervor running through the town's veins, no one can deny a revolution is underway.
This is one of the new shows that I have been looking forward to!
