Airs: March 13
At: 10 pm Eastern (the following week, March 20, Rise moves to 9 pm Eastern)
Rise is based on the true story novel, Drama High. Starring Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) and Rosie Perez (White Men Can’t Jump). The series follows Radnor, a small town high school teacher that takes over the school drama department and sets out on a journey to create a big musical production. Some are comparing this to early seasons of Glee, though with a connection to Hamilton, a more diverse cast, and a group that looks like they can actually sing, I’m expecting better things here.
