Encore Season 1 TV Preview
This reality TV musical is an uplifting coming together story that will have you both laughing and crying. Old classmates are faced with the daunting task of performing their original high school musical, many years after even attempting to sing a note.
Good news is there is plenty of help at hand in the shape of Broadway veterans and music video choreographers. And the story is not just in the performance, many of the cast have difficult stories to tell, grudges to bare and lots and lots of self doubt, creating just the right amount of drama.
Presented by actress and singer Kristen Bell (Frozen, House Of Lies) and produced by Will Gluck (Moonbeam City), the much anticipated Encore TV series have arrived in Australia and using the information in this guide you won’t have to miss a key moment.

Must See TV for fans of Encore
As Disney Plus has exclusive rights to all of their own productions, much of the content is only available via their platform. There are many movies and series that are shared with other services, such as Deadpool and the Star Wars films, but new and future Disney programming will be premiered exclusively on their streaming platform.
This means that recent productions such as Avengers Endgame and The Mandalorian will not be available on any other streaming platform or TV channel for the foreseeable future. So with this in mind, here’s a list of similar TV Shows that fans of Encore may also enjoy watching.
High School Musical The Series (Disney Plus)
The cast may have changed but the pupils at East High School still love to sing and dance. The premise is that the original film was shot at the school, and the pupils want to create their own version of the High School Musical. So, motivated by their teacher, they head out to create the ultimate stage performance, in a series that will have fans of the movies, along with viewers of Glee, very excited. High School Musical The Series is exclusively available now on Disney Plus.
Marvel Hero Project (Disney Plus)
Marvel superheroes have been all over our screens thanks to the popular movies from the comic book franchise. But what about real life heroes? Marvel Hero Project is a documentary series that looks at some of the most remarkable young children that have brought positive change to their communities in the USA. And, as homage, Marvel creates comic books based on their stories, giving a legacy to their work. Marvel Hero Project is exclusively available now on Disney Plus.
Lady & The Tramp (Disney Plus)
Nothing like a classic Disney animation to sit down in front of and enjoy with the family. Lady & The Tramp is a Romeo & Juliet type of tale, where two dogs from different backgrounds (one rich, one poor) find themselves making an unlikely love match. Fans of musicals will also be pleased to know there’s lots of singing and feel-good factor. Lady & The Tramp is exclusively available now on Disney Plus.
