Kenny Leon and Alex Rudzinski are co-directors with choreography by Jerry Mitchell, and Harvey Fierstein is the script adapter. Robert Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC Entertainment, said: "In keeping with our desire to bring the best of Broadway to our live musicals, we've assembled the Broadway dream team of Tony Award winners for Hairspray Live."


Robert Greenblatt said that the musical will be filmed on the "Universal [studio] back lot in Hollywood, so we"?re going to spend a fair amount of the show outdoors, which we haven"?t done previously. The sun will be going down just as we start "?Good Morning Baltimore,"? "? He further said that the broadcast would feature a live audience, as people from Baltimore and part of The Corny Collins Show.

The appearance of Ricki Lake and Marissa Jaret Winokur in the show was announced in November 2016, but with no additional details. Jerry Mitchell noted: "Don"?t we want to surprise you?"?


Several musical numbers that were written for the 2007 film will be included in Hairspray Live!: "Ladies"? Choice"? and "Come So Far (Got So Far to Go)."? The song "The Big Dollhouse" from the stage production is not in the television version.
