The 10-episode series, which comes from Paramount Television Studios, is written by creator Annabel Oakes, reported Variety.
''Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies'' is set four years before the original ''Grease'', which featured John Travolta as Danny Zuko, a rough-and-tumble greaser, and Olivia Newton-John as Sandy Olsson.
''Before rock 'n' roll ruled, before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school, four fed-up, outcast girls dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever,'' the official plotline for the spin-off show read.
The musical comedy series will highlight the rise of the original four Pink Ladies -- Rizzo, Jan, Marty and Frenchy -- long before they had to whip into shape the clean-cut new girl from Australia.
Oakes will also serve as showrunner as well as executive producer alongside Marty Bowen and Erik Feig.
