Fox's "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" promises to be one of the most fun experiences you'll have in front of your television this season! The re-imagining of the original movie is a long-awaited event by fans of the original camp film classic, but will it live up to all the hype? The two-hour television event follows the just-married Janet (Victoria Justice) and Brad (Ryan McCartan) who mistakenly stumble upon the lair of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox) and her merry band of androgynous misfits.

The infamous 1975 film starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick in the lead roles.  

The backstory of 'Rocky Horror,' a virgin's guide

Frank-N-Furter is a sexually ambiguous mad-scientist who is holding his annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of his latest creation, Rocky Horror (Staz Nair).

Rocky is a muscle man that was created to fulfill Frank's deepest desires.

Also starring in the remake is Adam Lambert (Eddie), Reeve Carney (Riff Raff), Annaleigh Ashford (Columbia), Christina Milian (Magenta) Ben Vereen (Dr. Everett Scott) and Tim Curry (Criminologist/Narrator). Looking for a phone to call for help when their car breaks down, newlyweds Brad and Janet fall prey to their devious brand of sexual mischief.

Translating such a groundbreaking movie to prime-time, particularly one that deals heavily in gender-bending sexual themes would be a tough task. Reportedly, fans of the original film were worried that the themes so beloved in the 1975 version would be omitted to make the film more family-friendly on Fox.

Director Kenny Ortega has re-titled the new film "The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again," but has kept the original script, a great move for "Rocky" fans who relish the chance to speak along with the parts from the film during the midnight showings of the film that have been going on for over 40-years.

Why Laverne Cox is a perfect fit for the role of Frank-N-Furter

According to a report by Rolling Stone, "We're not casting an original script; in a way, we're casting 'Tim Curry,'" said Lou Adler, the producer of the original film. "So if somebody is compared to Tim, they're going to lose." Reportedly when Adler and Ortega saw the screen test from Laverne Cox, they knew they were onto something special.

"She can sing and dance as good as anyone I've ever seen," Adler said to Rolling Stone. "The fact that she was transgender was a plus to us. It gave something to this 'Rocky Horror' that was below the surface, and that should be above the surface. We were sold. But even if she weren't [transgender]. We would have still gone with Laverne for her musical talent."

"The Rocky Horror Picture Show" airs Thursday Oct. 20 at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
