The Beat had the pleasure of chatting with the hilarious director Barry Sonnenfeld about his upcoming musical tv show, Schmigadoon!
A musical comedy from co-creator, co-writer, and original song architect Cinco Paul, Schmigadoon! is a love letter to musicals and a love story at the center. Filled with unique costuming and tongue-twisting tunes, Schmigadoon! follows the story of Melissa (Cecily Strong) and Josh (Keegan-Michael Key), a pair of doctors who started madly in love, but time and life caused a serious rift between them. In a wild twist of fate, while on a bonding camping trip, they are whisked away to Schmigadoon, a magical town that won’t let them leave until they find true love!
Watch our sit-down with Barry Sonnenfeld about how he got the project, how this story changed his heart about musicals, and so much more!
Schmigadoon! streams every Friday on Apple TV+!
