NBC Eyes Hairspray as Next Live Musical Event

Corny Collins, you’re on live in 10… 9… 8….

The deals aren’t 100-percent done yet, but NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt announced on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena that Hairspray is likely to be its next live musical, to air in December.

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who shepherded The Sound of Music Live, Peter Pan Live and The Wiz Live, are set to again serve as executive producers.

Ready, set, get to dream-casting!
