Get ready to have the time of your life, as the first teaser trailer for ABC’s upcoming Dirty Dancing remake has been released! Airing on May 24, this musical reimagining of the classic film features Hamptonite Debra Messing as Marjorie, the mother of heroine Baby (Abigail Breslin).
Dirty Dancing tells the story of Baby, a young woman vacationing in the Catskills with her family circa 1963, who falls in love with a dance instructor from the wrong side of the tracks. As she learns to dance and comes of age, she has the best summer of her life. Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze starred in the 1987 original.
The short but sweet teaser includes the meeting of Baby and Johnny (played by newcomer Colt Prattes), various musical numbers and the iconic line “Nobody puts Baby in a corner,” uttered by Johnny at the film’s finale. ABC’s Dirty Dancing also stars Nicole Scherzinger as troubled dancer Penny, Bruce Greenwood as Baby’s father, Jake, and Sarah Hyland as Lisa, Baby’s sister.
The three-hour “event” (as ABC calls it) airs on May 24. Check out the promo below.
