Cecily Strong, Kristen Chenoweth, Aaron Tveit & More Set For Apple Musical Comedy Series
Apple has set a star-studded cast for a musical comedy series starring Saturday Night Live regular Cecily Strong.

The untitled show (formerly known as Schmigadoon) comes from writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, executive producer Lorne Michaels and Universal Television. The cast alongside Strong will include Keegan-Michael Key, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, Kristen Chenoweth, Aaron Tveit, Dove Cameron, Ariana DeBose, Jaime Camil, Jane Krakowski and Ann Harada.

The series follows a couple (Strong and Key) on a backpacking trip designed to reinvigorate their relationship when they discover a magical town in which everyone acts as if they’re in a musical from the 1940s. They then discover that they can’t leave until they find “true love.” It’s scheduled to premiere in 2021.
