NBC assembles a star-studded team of award-winning talent for the live production of the beloved Tony Award®-winning Broadway show, Hairspray. Executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (The Wiz Live!, The Sound of Music Live!, Peter Pan Live!), Hairspray Live! tells the inspiring story of Tracy Turnblad (newcomer Maddie Baillio), a plump teen in 1962 Baltimore who wins a spot on a local TV dance program and ignites a campaign to integrate the show. The three-hour live event is directed by Tony Award®-winner Kenny Leon and features choreography from Tony Award®-winner Jerry Mitchell. The all-star cast includes Kristin Chenoweth, Harvey Fierstein, Ariana Grande, Derek Hough, Jennifer Hudson, and Martin Short.
