It was reported last month, that Roku was planning to revive Zoeys Extraordinary Playlist, which is a musical comedy canceled by NBC. If you are a fan of the show then you will be happier to learn that these plans are official now.
The Plans For “Zoeys Extraordinary Playlist” Revival
The title of the movie is Zoeys Extraordinary Playlist Christmas and there is no premiere date set but the project is expected to enter production next week.
Roku has also acquired streaming rights to 25 episodes of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, which will be available for streaming later on The Roku Channel in the US.
The head of the programming, Colin Davis, stated that the show is transcendent and can connect people all over the nation. The connection is what brings the film to life.
Davis also stated that they went out with the movie in order to present something to the audience as quickly as possible, instead of creating a new season. They do not want to slow the momentum down, around the show, and want to make sure that people can get an encore as soon as possible.
Zoeys Extraordinary Playlist will be made in a special way where the people can enjoy even if they are not familiar with the cast. This movie will be the point of entry for new watchers.
He expects that the movie will work as a trial for the revival of the series and if it is a successful one, then Roku will keep making new episodes for the fans to enjoy. They are just focusing on getting this special out, right now.
The movie will pick up where Season Two ended. Jane Levy stars as Zoey Clarke, a San Francisco computer coder who can hear the innermost wants, and desires of people around her.
The movie will also see the return of Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, David St. Louis, Mary Steenburgen, Peter Gallagher, and Bernadette Peters.
