Apple has launched the first trailer for their upcoming 6 part musical comedy series, 'Schmigadoon!' (the exclamation mark is part of the title!)
Pitched as a "parody of iconic musicals, 'Schmigadoon!' is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and stars Emmy Award nominee Cecily Strong and Emmy Award winner Keegan-Michael Key as a couple on a backpacking trip designed to reinvigorate their relationship when they discover a magical town in which everyone is living in a studio musical from the 1940s. They then discover that they can’t leave until they find “true love.”
The show was created for star Cecily Strong by writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio who wrote the Despicable Me films. Paul wrote all the songs for the show which were recorded live rather than dubbed over after filming. The director is Barry Sonnenfeld (Pushing Daisies, Men in Black, The Adams Family).
The stacked cast includes Broadway legend Kristen Chenoweth, Fred Armisen, Alan Cumming, Martin Short and Jane Krakowski (Dickinson) as well as the super talented Dove Cameron and Aaron Tveit.
We're very excited for this show here at Screen Times and will have a full review up the week of July 5th.
Schmigadoon! premieres on Apple TV+ on July 16th and you can watch the trailer below.
