After the massive success of Grease LIVE! Fox is taking on cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show with a brand new cast of Broadway babes and starring Laverne Cox as the iconic, gender-bending Dr. Frank-n-Furter.

The brand new trailer for the show gives us a glimpse at an underwear-clad Victoria Justice and features Laverne Cox absolutely nailing a few delicious Dr. Frank-n-Furter lines.

Check out the whole trailer here:

We’ve just gotten our very first peek at the über-innocent engaged couple, Brad (Ryan McCartan) and Janet (Victoria Justice), as well as Reeve Carney’s Riff Raff and Annaleigh Ashford’s Columbia — although if you blinked you might have missed her!

Here they are again:

Absent from the trailer are Magenta (Christina Milian), Rocky (Staz Nair) and the Criminologist narrator played by none other than the original Dr. Frank-n-Furter, 70-year-old Tim Curry.

Even from such a short clip, it sounds like Cox is owning the sly and sultry Frank-n-Furter voice — and was that a Tim Curry-esque English accent? Can’t wait to hear those pipes belt out “Sweet Transvestite”!

Start getting your rice and rubber gloves ready! It looks like this is going to be one hell of a show.

Fox's The Rocky Horror Picture Show will premiere this Halloween. In the mean time, you can check out these images from the show.
