In case you didn’t already know, Hairspray Live! takes place in 1962 Baltimore and is based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.

Here’s the synopsis: Plump teenager Tracy Turnblad’s dream is to dance on “The Corny Collins Show,” a local TV program. When against all odds Tracy wins a role on the show, she becomes a celebrity overnight and meets a colorful array of characters, including the resident dreamboat, Link; the ambitious mean girl, Amber; an African-American boy she meets in detention, Seaweed; and his mother, Motormouth Maybelle, the owner of a local record store.

Tracy’s mother is the indomitable Edna, and she eventually encourages Tracy on her campaign to integrate the all-white “Corny Collins Show.”

Mark your calendars – Hairspray Live! will air on Wednesday, December 7 @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC.
