The show follows Millennials Vincent (Lucas Till) and Victoria (Kiersey Clemons), who meet "accidentally" on Halloween night. They 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 hour-long special was first announced back in July. Jackson's team took to Twitter to share the news of the upcoming animated special, adding that further details would follow in the coming weeks. "There's a new animated special coming to TV this fall--Michael Jackson's Halloween. More details will be announced in the coming weeks," the account wrote at that time.
Directed by Mark A.Z. Dippe ("The Boxcar Children") and produced by Daniel Chuba, "Michael Jackson's Halloween" is executive produced by John Branca and John McClain, who both serve as co-executors of Jackson's estate.
