NBC to Produce Live Version of ‘Hairspray’
NBC has named Hairspray as its forthcoming live musical!
The deal isn’t 100-percent, but NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said that a formal announcement is coming soon. He added that Hairspray is a musical that “seems really fun, and I think it will be really great live,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Hairspray will be the fourth live production from NBC; it follows in the footsteps of The Sound of Music Live, Peter Pan Live and The Wiz Live.
No actors have been cast in the starring roles, but as always, the show will air live in December. Expect Hairspray Live to hit your tele in December 2016!
