Look out, Frozen, because there’s a new fairytale musical comedy that we can't wait to obsess over. According to Deadline, ABC has picked up Galavant for a series order. As previously reported, the show comes from the minds of Alan Menken, currently celebrating a Tony nomination for Aladdin, as well as lyricist Glenn Slater and Dan Fogelman.
Galavant is a single-camera comedy that follows a handsome prince who embarks on a quest for revenge on the king who stole his one true love.
Menken, Slater and Fogelman teamed up previously for the Emmy-nominated musical episode of The Neighbors. Menken and Slater are long-term collaborators, having penned music and lyrics, respectively, for Broadway’s Leap of Faith, Sister Act and The Little Mermaid. Menken has won eight Oscars and was awarded a Tony for Newsies.
