Rocky Horror Resurrection NEWSFLASH
- Two-Hour RHPS TV Event Airs This Fall on FOX TV!
- Casting NEWS from FOX TV
- IT's OFFICIAL!

Hi Everybody,
How have your holidays been so far? Great 2016 New Year?

Here's more news about the FOX TV remake of RHPS, recently announced this month. They've filled and cast 7 of the 10 main characters so far. Including Tim Curry! While recovering from a stroke and wheelchair bound, Tim Curry apparently is well enough for the role he has taken.
I've located their stories, announcements and photos, noted below for your enjoyment. All officially confirmed as can be, directly from FOX.

Various fandom reactions are strung around the internet. They range from happy 'anti - cipation' to angry outbursts. "leave well enough alone", "you can't remake a classic", "you can't have a transgender woman as Frankie" There are even a few attempts at petitioning FOX for the remake to stop.

It will be interesting to see how the new show succeeds or not. Will it make new or old fans happy?
We'll all have to wait and see. My guess, is that they might be aiming for a September or October 2016 release.
What do you think?

Here's to an exciting fall 2016. Take care and keep in touch.
Yours,
RU Frankie
