Schmigadoon Apple TV is making its global debut exclusively on Apple TV+ this Friday! The highly-anticipated musical comedy features a star-studded cast with Cecily Strong, Keegan-Michael Key, Alan Cumming, Kristin Chenoweth,  Aaron Tveit, Dove Cameron, Ariana DeBose, Fred Armisen, Jaime Camil, Jane Krakowski and Ann Harada.

The upcoming series is a parody of the iconic Golden Age musicals and stars Strong and Key as a couple on a backpacking trip that accidentally discovers a magical town living in a 1940s musical. While there, the couple finds that they won’t be able to leave the town until they find “true love.”

Ahead of the series premiere this Friday, Apple TV+ has shared a sneak peek from the first episode which you can watch below.

As you can see from the clip, Melissa (Strong) and Josh (Key) are in for a shock as they arrive in this singing small town with air as sweet as a macaroon and sun that shines from July to June. The above clip shows the chorus singing “Welcome to Our Little Town” while giving the newcomers a warm welcome.

Melissa assumes this is just something they do to entice tourists, like Colonial Williamsburg, but Josh doesn’t seem all that enthused by the theatrics.
