Watch 'Hairspray Live!' online

UPDATE, Thurs: You can now watch Hairspray Live! for free online on ITV. Watch it as it airs on Friday, Dec. 9, at 3 PM ET, or anytime on-demand after it airs. 

It’s time for TV’s next big musical production! This time it’s Hairspray Live! — a remake, of course, of Hairspray, the hit Broadway musical.

A brief synopsis: In 1962 Baltimore, overweight teen Tracy Turnblad becomes a local celebrity after landing a role dancing on “The Corny Collins Show,” and embarks on a campaign to integrate the all-white program.

The Broadway production won eight Tony Awards in 2003, including Best Musical. In the new remake, the cast includes a star lineup: Maddie Bailie, Kristin Chenoweth, Ariana Grande, Harvey Fierstein, Jennifer Hudson, Martin Short, Dove Cameron, and Sean Hayes.

Hairspray Live! starts at 8:00 PM EST on NBC, Wednesday, Dec. 7. There’s also a preview show at 7:30 PM, 1st Look: Countdown to Hairspray Live!
