The new show takes place in 1954, four years before the original Grease movie.

According to Deadline, it's set, 'before rock ‘n’ roll ruled and before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school.'

'It follows four fed-up outcasts who dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever.'

Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Justin Tranter will be looking after the film's original music.

He's well known for previously working with the likes of Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga.

Meanwhile, Jamal Sims, who's previously worked on RuPaul’s Drag Race, will look after the choreography.

Nicole Clemens, President, Paramount Television Studios & Paramount+ Original Scripted Series, told Deadline:

'We are thrilled to unveil our new original series that will introduce an incredible cast of young stars in the making and electrifying musical numbers you will fall in love with.'

'[Creator] Annabel [Oakes] and [director and executive producer] Alethea [Jones] have managed to brilliantly capture the spirit of the iconic beloved classic film which like Rise of the Pink Ladies, is both set in the past but relevant to the present.'

The series is due out later this year.
