Grease Living

Since NBC came alive, ratings-wise, with its Sound of Music Live! special event last December, Fox is getting in on the same game.

Oh yeah, it is on: The powers that be at the network are prepping Grease Live for 2015.

The production will be a live – duh – three-hour version of the Broadway high-school musical classic that inspired the 1978 John Travolta-Olivia Newton-John film.

No word on casting yet.

Up first, though, the Peacock will do it again. In case you missed it, NBC will stage a live production of Peter Pan this December.

Casting for that has yet to be announced. Although Bill Murray did throw his name in the hat a few months ago. Jokingly, of course.
