When director Thomas Kail took a break from Broadway’s Hamilton to take on the TV musical Grease: Live on Fox, he had a very specific vision for the complicated production. And his plan worked--Grease: Live was a hit, and Kail’s revival raised the bar on TV musicals. We talk to the Tony-winning director, who now has an Emmy nomination as well. Then, another Emmy nominee--actor Sterling K. Brown tells us how he prepared to play prosecutor Chris Darden in the FX limited series The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
