He is holding an annual Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” – a fit, attractive man (Nair) created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires. Carney will play Riff Raff, one of Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s loyal servants.”

Loud Adler, Gail Berman, and Kenny Ortega will produce the special, with filming to being this winter and the tentative air date slated for the fall.
