Almost exactly one year after HBO Max ordered Grease: Rydell High, Variety reports that the spinoff has found a new home on Paramount+ after the WarnerMedia streaming service gave up on it. "To those asking did HBO Max put up a fight to keep the show and why its summer dreams were ripped at the seams, the answer, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, is that Casey Bloys decided to not move forward with the project after taking over HBO Max content duties as part of his promotion to Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max in August," reports Variety's Will Thorne. "The Grease spinoff was originally called Rydell High and was unveiled with much fanfare by then WarnerMedia Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, who exited the company amid the seismic exec shake-up which saw Bloys promoted. At the time it was first announced, Greenblatt’s intention was to 'build out the world of this show' and turn it into a 'High School Musical kind of experience.'" Thorne also notes that Rise of the Pink Ladies may be without Grease's signature songs like "Summer Nights" because the estate for original songwriters Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey is withholding the rights to their music.
