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.
