“High School Musical” director Kenny Ortega is going back to high school — and music — in upcoming Netflix series “Julie and the Phantoms.”

On Wednesday, the streaming service released the trailer for the upcoming Madison Reyes series, which Ortega will direct.

“Julie and the Phantoms” follows high schooler Julie (Reyes), who lost her passion for music after her mom died last year. But when the ghosts of three dreamy musicians (Charlie Gillespie, Owen Patrick Joyner, Jeremy Shada) from 1995 suddenly appear in her mom’s old music studio, Julie feels her own inner spirit beginning to reawaken, and she’s inspired to start singing and writing songs again. As their friendship with Julie grows, the boys convince her to create a new band together: Julie and the Phantoms.

In addition to Reyes and her backup phantoms, the streaming show also stars Booboo Stewart and Cheyenne Jackson.

Executive producers are Ortega, George Salinas, Paul Becker, Jaime Aymerich, Michel Tikhomiroff, Fabio Danesi and showrunners Dan Cross and Dave Hoge.

“Julie and the Phantoms” is based on the original Brazilian series, “Julie e os Fantasmas,” which was written by Danesi, Paula Knudsen and Tiago Mello.
