Nobody puts Abigail Breslin in a corner!
ABC unveiled the first teaser for its reboot of "Dirty Dancing," which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Abigail Breslin stars as shy, unsure Baby, who falls for bad boy dancer Johnny (Colt Prattes).
Even though this remake puts a "fresh twist" on the classic story, the teaser has many classic scenes from the original, including Baby and Johnny dancing on a log and the two performing the famous lift. You can't have "Dirty Dancing" without the lift! And of course, Johnny declares, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." The "fresh twist" includes more back story on the characters, a look at what happens to Baby and Johnny once the summer is over, and more Lisa!
The remake features a star-studded cast, including Debra Messing (Marjorie Houseman), Bruce Greenwood (Dr. Jake Houseman), Nicole Scherzinger (Penny Rivera), Sarah Hyland (Lisa Houseman), Tony Roberts (Max Kellerman), Katey Sagal (Vivian Pressman), Billy Dee Williams (Tito) and J. Quinton Johnson (Marco).
"Dirty Dancing" airs May 24 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Her luck turns around, however, when the resort's dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby's father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she's determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer. Read More
