Rocky Horror Show tribute to air exclusively on Sky Cinema

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, a reimagining of Richard O’Brien’s bizarro 1975 cult film, is set to air in the UK and Ireland exclusively on Sky Cinema.

It's a special made-for-TV movie from Fox 21 Studios to celebrate the 40 year anniversary of the movie's release. Since the show's original run on the stage in 1973, it's seen huge success, with non-stop tours, theatre runs, and of course a film.

The new version stars Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black) as a modern-day update to the iconic Dr Frank-N-Furter - the sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania, played in the original movie by Tim Curry. Curry himself will return as The Criminologist, aka the narrator.

The rest of the cast includes Victoria Justice (Victorious) as Janet (damnit); Ryan McCartan (Liv and Maddie) as Brad; Reeve Carney (Penny Dreadful) as spooky handyman Riff Raff; Annaleigh Ashford (Masters of Sex) as Columbia; Christina Milian as Magenta; Ben Vereen as Dr Everett von Scott - and musician Adam Lambert as Eddie, the undead delivery boy first made famous by Meatloaf.

Ian Lewis, group director for Sky Cinema, said: "Sky Cinema is all about giving our viewers the very best experience, so to have a brand new production of a beloved classic before anybody else in the UK and Ireland is absolutely brilliant. It sums up the service perfectly. Plus who doesn't love doing The Time Warp?"

Let's Do the Time Warp Again will air on Friday 28 October on Sky Cinema - available through Sky, Now TV, Virgin Media, and TalkTalk TV. We'll be inviting all our friends over and heckling the screen in true Rocky Horror tradition.
