NBC Plans Next Live Musical: ‘Peter Pan’


This past December, NBC aired ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ with American Idol winner-country singer-actress Carrie Underwood and ‘True Blood’ star Stephen Moyer in the lead roles. Shortly after that airing the network announced they would be moving forward with another live production with the next classic musical to air on the network being Peter Pan.

The same producers behind ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ – Craig Zadan and Neil Meron – will executive produce ‘Peter Pan’, which – of course – tells the tale of a mischievous boy who can fly and doesn’t age, who grew up without parents and spent his never-ending childhood on the enchanted island of Never Land where is he the leader of the Lost Boys.

Casting is currently on the fast track and fans of the story will assuredly start speculating on who will take on the lead roles in this new production.

‘Peter Pan’ will telecast live on NBC on December 4 of this year, which is not so ironically the same day that ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ aired last year.
