New Musical Series Starring Cecily Strong To Feature Aaron Tveit & More


Apple TV has revealed the all-star cast for a brand new musical television series starring Saturday Night Live's Cecily Strong.

Strong will play Melissa, with Keenan-Michael Key as her partner Josh, Alan Cumming as Mayor Menlove, Fred Armisen as Reverend Layton, Kristin Chenoweth as Mildred Layton, Aaron Tveit as Danny, Dove Cameron as Betsy, Ariana DeBose as Emma, Jaime Camil as Doc Lopez, Jane Krakowski as the Countess, and Ann Harada as Florence Menlove

The series follows a couple (Strong and Key) on a backpacking trip designed to reinvigorate their relationship when they discover a magical town in which everyone acts as if they're in a musical from the 1940s. They then discover that they can’t leave until they find "true love."

Produced by Lorne Michaels and created by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, it is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2021. Paul will also write all of the show's original music with Barry Sonnenfeld directing. Can't wait!
