First Look – Photos for Rise

Rise, the new NBC drama set to premiere on Tuesday, March 20 at 9pm, will blow your doors off.  Featuring heartfelt, sincere and impassioned performances from its leads, in particular Josh Radnor who stars as English teacher turned school theater director, Lou Mazzuchelli, Rise will make you experience highs and lows and all the feels in between.

While not packed wall to wall with songs like some may be anticipating (this is NOT Glee), when the young cast members do open their mouths, their voices are amazing; keep an eye out on Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Damon J. Gillespie (Inside Amy Schumer but basically this is his first acting gig), Amy Forsyth (The Path) and Ted Sutherland (this looks like his first regular series but he’s had several one shot appearances including on Law & Order: SVU), as the breakout young cast members.  Below are the first look photos from the Pilot Episode.

The official show info from the release … “From Jason Katims, executive producer and showrunner of “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood,” and “Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller comes a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students but the entire working-class town. Inspired by a true story.

The cast includes Josh Radnor, Rosie Perez, Auli’i Cravalho, Damon J. Gillespie, Marley Shelton, Rarmian Newton, Ted Sutherland, Amy Forsyth, Casey Johnson, Taylor Richardson, Joseph Tippett, Shirley Rumierk.”

Here is the official info on Krypton, “What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, “Krypton” follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, who is faced with a life and death conflict – save his home planet or let it be destroyed in order to restore the fate of his future grandson. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg finds himself in a difficult position. He must redeem his family’s honor and protect the ones he loves while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac (Blake Ritson) and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos).

“Krypton” is from Warner Horizon Scripted Television and is executive produced by David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) through his Phantom Four banner, alongside Cameron Welsh, who serves as showrunner. In addition to Cuffe, Sipos and Ritson, the show also stars Georgina Campbell (“Broadchurch”), Elliot Cowan (“Da Vinci’s Demons”), Ann Ogbomo (“World War Z”), Rasmus Hardiker (“Your Highness”), Wallis Day (“Will”), Aaron Pierre (“Tennison”) and Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”). Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
