The Rocky Horror Picture Show Trailer: Laverne Cox Stars in Fox Remake

“It’s not easy having a good time,” though the trailer for Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show remake sure makes it seem that way.

The network on Monday released the first official trailer for the not-so-live musical event, starring Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black) as the twisted scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a role made famous by Tim Curry in the original 1975 film; Curry also appears in the made-for-TV remake as the Criminologist.

Additional Rocky Horror stars include Victoria Justice (Eye Candy, Victorious) and Ryan McCartan (Liv and Maddie) as the newly engaged Janet and Brad; Reeve Carney (Penny Dreadful) as handyman Riff Raff; Adam Lambert (American Idol, Glee) as Eddie, a former delivery boy; and Christina Milian (Grandfathered, The Voice) as Magenta, the good doctor’s maid.

Fox’s Rocky Horror premieres in October. Hit PLAY on the trailer above, then drop a comment below: Will you be watching?
