Rise premieres

When high school English teacher Lou Mazzucchelli finds himself feeling unfulfilled in his current post, he asks for permission to take over the school’s drama department with the dream of producing a production of Spring Awakening. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done in a town that places far more emphasis on the spectacle of sports than complexities of art.

The series is based on the famed theater program at Harry S Truman High School in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Tuesdays on NBC.
