High School Musical: Get in the Picture
ABC, July 20, 8 p.m. ET
This summer series, not available for review, probably can be imagined like one of those small, humming UFOs that preceded the Mother Ship in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. You know who Mamma is: The High School Musical franchise has been such a juggernaut that the third one will premiere in movie theaters in October. Zac Efron singing about love in IMAX will change our lives FOREVER!
Hosted by Nick Lachey, Get in the Picture is a massive talent search that ends with the winner starring in the movie’s closing-credits video. If I were Nick, I’d follow the lead of Sharpay—undercut the finalists and win the thing for myself.
