[TV] NBC Announces Live Peter Pan Musical for TV
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.19.2014



Following the successful airing of The Sound of Music Live!, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt officially announced that NBC's next live TV musical event will be Peter Pan. The show will be a live telecast set for Thursday, December 4.

The show will be executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who also produced The Sound of Music Live!. Casting is now under way.

Greenblatt said on the announcement: "We're very pleased to be underway on 'Peter Pan' as our next live holiday musical for the whole family. We were all delighted to see how 'The Sound of Music Live!' struck such a chord in December and brought nearly 19 million people to the live telecast plus another several million viewers over the weekend. In the hopes that lightning strikes twice, we think we've landed on another great Broadway musical - which ironically also starred Mary Martin - that is a timeless classic for all audiences, young and old, who just never want to grow up."

Zadan and Meron said in the release: "We're thrilled to be reteaming with NBC and Bob Greenblatt in bringing 'Peter Pan' back to its roots as a live television event. We hope to create the joy that has made this musical so beloved. We would like a whole new generation to experience 'Peter Pan' and for families across the country to share the magic."

NBC previously broadcast a live production of Peter Pan in 1955 for a live audience of 65 million viewers. NBC later broadcast the show again in 1956 and 1960. the show was also the first broadcast of a musical in color.
