With the assistance from his estate, CBS is set to air and animated Halloween special featuring Michael Jackson’s music.
The new, one-hour animated special is produced by Optimum Productions, the Michael Jackson company now owned by his estate. It will feature the voices of actors Christine Baranski, Kiersey Clemons, Alan Cumming, George Eads, Brad Garrett, Lucy Liu, Jim Parsons and Lucas Till.
It will follow millennials Vincent (Till) and Victoria (Clemons), who meet “accidentally” on Halloween night and find themselves, along with Ichabod the dog, at a mysterious hotel located at 777 Jackson Street called This Place Hotel. Once inside, Vincent and Victoria are sent on an unexpected, magical adventure of personal discovery, culminating in a spectacular dance finale featuring an animated Michael Jackson.
The special is set to air this fall.
