I have such high hopes for this! And thank you CBS for bringing back the Halloween special with something new.
Michael Jackson's Halloween, a new one-hour animated adventure with the King of Pop's acclaimed music as its soundtrack, is coming to CBS this Fall—and you just can't "Beat It."
The spooky special will be packed with the voice talents of CBS fan-favorites, including The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, MacGyver's Lucas Till and George Eads, The Good Wife's Alan Cumming, The Good Fight's Christine Baranski, and Elementary's Lucy Liu.
Michael Jackson's Halloween will also feature the voice talents of Brad Garrett and Kiersey Clemons.
The animated special follows Vincent (voiced by Till) and Victoria (voiced by Clemons), who "accidentally" cross paths on Halloween night and embark on a magical adventure of personal discovery.
Along with Ichabod—an adorable pup—the duo finds themselves in the mysterious This Place Hotel, aptly located at 777 Jackson Street.
The hour-long event culminates in an incredible dance finale—featuring an animated version of the King of Pop himself.
Michael Jackson's Halloween was created and produced by Optimum Productions, with animation production by Hammerhead.
John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of The Estate of Michael Jackson, serve as executive producers. Daniel Chuba is the producer and Mark A.Z. Dippé is the director.
Stay tuned to CBS.com to find out more about Michael Jackson's Halloween, airing this Fall exclusively on CBS as soon as they post a date I will let you know.
