"The special follows millennials Vincent and Victoria, who meet 'accidentally' on Halloween night and find themselves, along with Ichabod the dog, at a mysterious hotel located at 777 Jackson Street called This Place Hotel," a synopsis explained.

Jackson—who is famous for dozens of pop hits, including "Thriller," "Beat It" and "Bad"—died in 2009 at the age of 50.
