The ABC network is set to premiere its remake of Dirty Dancing on Wednesday, May 24 -- and the first teaser trailer has finally been released!
Just heard about the #dirtydancing remake going on to ABC... not sure how I feel about this?! 🤔— Carla Ray-Smith (@CarlaRayS86) April 26, 2017
Abigail Breslin will star as Frances Houseman [AKA Baby], with Colt Prattes taking on the role of Johnny Castle.
@yoabbaabba can't wait to see the new Remake of dirty dancing. You're an amazing Actress! ❤— bailey marie quirke (@QuirkeBailey) April 26, 2017
Tbr, there is actually quite a bit of star power attached to this project.
Sarah Hyland, Debra Messing, Katey Sagal, Trevor Einhorn, Nicole Scherzinger and Billy Dee Williams are all part of the cast, too.
(Honestly, casting Nicole [the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls] was genius. She's literally got the whole dirty dancing thing down.)

Debra Messing recently dropped a few hints to People about what we can expect from the TV version.
"This isn't a replica of the original. This takes some liberties," she said. "It has the DNA of the original, but you are going to find out what happened to Baby and Johnny after that summer ended. So there's some additional surprises in there that are new."
How do you feel about all of this? Are you excited for the Dirty Dancing remake?
