Running a whopping three hours, Breslin stars as Baby Houseman – a young woman on vacation with her family in Catskill Mountains resort in the 1960s. Prattes plays the dance instructor Johnny Castle whom she ultimately falls for.
Joining them are Katey Sagal and Bruce Greenwood as Baby’s parents and Sarah Hyland as her sister, Nicole Scherzinger as another dance instructor, and Debra Messing and Billy Dee Williams in supporting roles.
