Eagle-eyed viewers would’ve noticed Paramount+ debuting the official trailer for the new original series “Grease : Rise of the Pink Ladies” on ”The Drew Barrymore Show” today.
Marisa Davila, Cheyenne Isabel Wells, Ari Notartomaso and Tricia Fukuhara, who star in the prequel to the Travolta/Newton-John classic, appeared on the show to coincide with the premiere.
