When Lou (Josh Radnor) describes his vision for the show’s staging and design, Tracey (Rosie Perez) questions his every decision – but it’s Simon’s (Ted Sutherland) bombshell news that forces Lou to ask himself whether picking this controversial show was worth the cost. Meanwhile, Coach Strickland (Joe Tippett) attempts to rehabilitate Gordy (Casey W. Johnson), and Gail (Marley Shelton) worries for Maashous (Rarmian Newton). Lilette (Auli’i Cravalho) struggles to contain her feelings for Robbie (Damon J. Gillespie) after discovering another side of him. RISE Season 1 Episode 3 Photos What Flowers May Bloom.

From Jason Katims, executive producer and showrunner of “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood,” and “Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller comes a heartening new drama about finding inspiration in unexpected places. When dedicated teacher Lou Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor) sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theater department, he galvanizes not only the faculty and students but the entire working-class town.

The cast includes Josh Radnor, Rosie Perez, Auli’i Cravalho, Damon J. Gillespie, Marley Shelton, Rarmian Newton, Ted Sutherland, Amy Forsyth, Casey W. Johnson, Taylor Richardson, Joe Tippett, and Shirley Rumierk.

Rise is created by Jason Katims, who serves as showrunner and executive producer. Jeffrey Seller, Flody Suarez and Michelle Lee also executive produce. Mike Cahill directs and executive produces the pilot.

Rise is produced by Universal Television, True Jack Productions and Seller Suarez Productions.
