The Wiz is coming to Fuse on Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite musical soundtracks, not as enamored with the classic film because its 70s, disco aesthetics freaks me out man. I feel like I need to be high or the movie is making me high watching it. But it has Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsy Russel and Richard Pryor in their Prime! #Wizgiving Thursday, November 24 at 8 p.m. ET/ PT, 7c on Fuse. Yes I feel dirty typing #Wizgiving.
