Fox to Broadcast Justice’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” in October

It will be a Rocky Halloween for Victoria Justice

Fox will air its remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, starring the 23-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/singer, in October. A specific date was not announced.

Victoria Justice

A re-imagining of the original movie, the two-hour event follows sweethearts Janet Weiss (Justice) and Brad Majors (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon the bizarre abode of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox), a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad scientist. She’s holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of Rocky Horror – a fit, attractive man (Staz Nair) created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.

The cast also includes Adam Lambert (Eddie), Reeve Carney (Riff Raff), Annaleigh Ashford (Columbia), Christina Milian (Magenta), Ivy Levan (Usherette), Ben Vereen (Dr. Everett Scott) and Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, as the show’s Criminologist Narrator.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is executive produced by original Rocky Horror EP Lou Adler, along with Gail Berman and Kenny Ortega.

Fox 21 Television Studios is the producer.

Justice Inks Talent Deal with Fox & 20th Century Fox Television

It looks like Victoria Justice’s next television appearance will be on Fox.

The 22-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/singer has signed a talent deal with Fox and 20th Century Fox Television.

Victoria Justice

As part of the pact, the studio and network will develop joint projects featuring roles specifically tailored for the former Nickelodeon star.

They will also be able to have Justice guest star on existing Fox/20th television series.

The network and studio have young female ensemble horror comedy Scream Queens, and Justice’s background as a recording artist would also make her a good fit for music-fueled projects like Empire and Urban Cowboy

Justice has toplined her own series both on the comedy and drama side with the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and MTV thriller Eye Candy.

“We’re thrilled to bring Victoria Justice into the fold as we develop our next round of fresh, young and vibrant material that can be tailored to her distinct point of view and considerable talent,” said Sharon Klein, 20th Century Fox Television’s EVP Casting. “She has an incredibly relevant fan base and major social media presence, making this a truly exciting partnership with unlimited options.”

Justice will next star in the indie romantic comedy Naomi + Ely’s No Kiss List, which will be released September 18 on iTunes.

She’ll also star in this fall’s high school comedy The Outskirts, opening wide November 6.

Her series credits also include Zoey 101 and iCarly

Creepy Trailer Released for Justice’s MTV Drama “Eye Candy”

Victoria Justice’s latest project is no Victorious

The 21-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/singer stars in MTV’s upcoming drama Eye Candy, a far cry from her hit Nickelodeon sitcom, as evidenced by the just-released trailer for the show.

Victoria Justice in Eye Candy

“Thank you for sharing,” snarks a mysterious voice in the just-released teaser for Justice’s Eye Candy, based on the novel of the same name by R. L. Stine. “It makes it so easy to be your follower.”

“I know sharing makes you feel alive, which is funny, because you don’t know it yet, but you’re already dead,” continues the voice.

Premiering Monday, January 12, at 10:00 pm ET, the 10-episode series follows a New York City tech genius named Lindy Sampson (Justice) who discovers that one of her online suitors might be a wanted murderer.

The series also stars Harvey Guillen as George.
