The voices of Tony winners Alan Cumming and Christine Baranski—as well as those of Kiersey Clemons, George Eads, Brad Garrett, Lucy Liu, Jim Parsons, and Lucas Till—will be heard in Michael Jackson's Halloween this fall on CBS.

The new one-hour animated adventure, featuring the music of the late pop icon, is created and produced by Optimum Productions.

Cumming and Baranski starred together in the CBS series The Good Wife; the latter also headlines the CBS All Access spinoff, The Good Fight.

The special, according to CBS, follows “millennials Vincent (Till) and Victoria (Clemons), who meet ’accidentally’ on Halloween night and find themselves, along with Ichabod the dog, at a mysterious hotel located at 777 Jackson Street called This Place Hotel. Once inside, Vincent and Victoria are sent on an unexpected, magical adventure of personal discovery, culminating in a spectacular dance finale featuring an animated Michael Jackson.”

The program will have animation production by Hammerhead. John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson, serve as executive producers. Daniel Chuba is the producer, and Mark A.Z. Dippé is the director.
