It is not a new idea for Hollywood to turn classic horror movies into TV series, in such this has already been done. Taking movies like “Psycho” which inspired the “Bates Motel” TV show; to “Silence Of The Lambs” featuring terrifying serial killer and cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lector who was granted his own show “Hannibal”. Now coming to light is the 70’s cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is making its debut on television, in a two hour TV special.

Please save your groans and cries of “dammit Janet”, for the special does have some promise…. as of the moment.

Although it is nearly impossible to fill Tim Curry’s iconic and chilling shoes as Dr. Franke-N-Furter, fans should be very  pleased with the studio’s choice of Laverne Cox as our new “sweet transvestite.” While it is expected Cox will not “thrill” audiences or fans the way Curry was did, there are very high hopes that she will still take us on “a strange journey,” for her Emmy nomination for the Netflix original series “Orange Is The New Black” proves she has what it takes, but can she fit in Curry’s fishnets?

Cox isn’t the only noteworthy member of the cast and crew, for Emmy winner, Kenny Ortega, of the “High School Musical Franchise”, has also signed on as the director for the event, but just to make sure no one screws up Gail Berman and Lou Alder, two original produces of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” have also signed up.

The special is rumored to air in time of the 40th anniversary of the movie, which will break records of being the longest running movie in theatres and has grossed over $112 million.

There is a lot running on this show, hopefully “sword of Damocles” won’t hang over our heads.
