“Dirty Dancing” is a three-hour filmed musical event and an adaptation of the beloved 1987 hit romantic drama and instant movie classic. “Dirty Dancing” will air on ABC. Produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Allison Shearmur Productions.

Singer/dancer/actor Colt Prattes (“P!nk’s music video “Try” and her The Truth About Love Tour, “Rock of Ages”) will be showing Baby (Abigail Breslin) the time of her life as romantic lead ‘Johnny,’ a charismatic, skilled dance instructor and leader of the working-class entertainment staff at an early 1960’s Catskill Mountains resort.

Academy Award®-nominated actress, singer and author Abigail Breslin (“Freak Show,” “Scream Queens,” “Little Miss Sunshine”) co-stars with Prattes as lead ‘Baby,’ an innocent young woman who vacations with her affluent parents at an early 1960’s Catskill Mountains resort and gets swept off her feet by a handsome, working-class dance instructor

This new ABC network musical event will also star Emmy® Award-winning actress Debra Messing (“The Mysteries of Laura,” “Smash,” “Will & Grace”) as ‘Marjorie Houseman,’ Dr. Houseman’s wife and mother of Baby (Abigail Breslin) and Lisa. She is a meticulous 1960’s housewife who takes great pride in her family and is using this summer vacation to try and rekindle her romance with her workaholic husband.

“Dirty Dancing” is a global pop culture phenomenon – the film’s soundtrack generated two multi-platinum albums and the single “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” won the Golden Globe® and Academy Award® for Best Original Song, as well as a Grammy® for Best Duet. The film has been an iconic franchise title in the Lionsgate library for over a decade, selling hundreds of thousands of DVD’s and digital copies each year.
