‘Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies’: Paramount+ Releases Music Video For ‘Grease Is the Word’ Single

by Dave Elliott

Paramount+ has released the official music video for the single “Grease Is the Word” from the upcoming new original series Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, which premieres in April on the streaming service.

‘Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies’ is a musical series that takes place four years before the original “Grease.” In 1954, before rock ‘n’ roll ruled, before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school, four fed-up outcasts dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever.

The series stars Marisa Davila as Jane, Cheyenne Isabel Wells as Olivia, Ari Notartomaso as Cynthia, Tricia Fukuhara as Nancy, Shanel Bailey as Hazel, Madison Thompson as Susan, Johnathan Nieves as Richie, Jason Schmidt as Buddy, Maxwell Whittington-Cooper as Wally and Jackie Hoffman as Asst. Principal McGee.

This version of “Grease Is the Word” is a modern take on the iconic song “Grease,” which was written by Barry Gibb and performed by Frankie Valli and served as the opening track of the 1978 classic musical film. “Grease Is the Word” will be featured alongside 30 original songs in season one of ‘Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies’, with executive music producer and Grammy Award-nominated songwriter Justin Tranter at the helm. As seen in the “Grease Is the Word” music video, each song in the series will be accompanied by a choreographed dance number, led by choreographer Jamal Sims. From Capitol Records, the “Grease Is the Word” single is now available for streaming and download everywhere.

From Paramount Television Studios, ‘Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies’ is written and executive produced by Annabel Oakes (‘Atypical’, ‘Minx’), who also serves as showrunner and directed a later episode. Alethea Jones (‘Made for Love’, ‘Dollface’, ‘Evil’) directed the pilot plus two more episodes and executive produces. Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey executive produce for Temple Hill, and Adam Fishbach also executive produces. Erik Feig and Samie Kim Falvey executive produce via Picturestart, and it’s produced by Grace Gilroy.

Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies‘ premieres with two episodes on Friday, 7 April 2023, exclusively on Paramount+ in the UK, Australia, Latin America, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France. The series premieres Thursday, 6 April in the USA and Canada.
