In anticipation of the Rise panel at the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour, NBC has released a gallery of cast photos from the upcoming TV series.
Rise will premiere Tuesday, March 13 and will surely become a new TV obsession for those who watch. Enjoy your first looks at the Rise cast below!
From Jason Katims, executive producer and showrunner of “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood,” and “Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller comes a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher and family man Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students but the entire working-class town. Inspired by a true story.
The cast includes Josh Radnor, Rosie Perez, Auli’i Cravalho, Damon J. Gillespie, Marley Shelton, Rarmian Newton, Ted Sutherland, Amy Forsyth, Casey Johnson, Taylor Richardson, Joseph Tippett, Shirley Rumierk.
Jason Katims serves as executive producer and showrunner. Jeffrey Seller, Flody Suarez and Michelle Lee executive produce. Mike Cahill directs and executive produces the pilot.
“Rise” is produced by Universal Television, True Jack Productions and Seller Suarez Productions.
