[ # ] I Can Hear the Bells because NBC is doing Hairspray live!
January 13th, 2016 under Hairspray, NBC


Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the people who brought the Broadway version of Hairspray to the big screen are now going to bring it to the small screen. NBC’s Entertainment President Bob Greenblatt announced today at the NBC TCA Press Day that it looks like Hairspray will be the live musical this December. They haven’t closed the deal yet, but it is very very close.
As soon as it becomes official, I am wishing and hoping that they announce that David Hasselhoff is cast as Edna Turnblad. A role originated by Divine and later played by John Travolta. How amazing would that be? When it comes to Edna’s husband, I am wishing and hoping they don’t have Christopher Walken reprise role after his performance in Peter Pan. Scratch that, let’s hope they bring him back for his second live NBC musical along with Queen Latifah, who just appeared in The Wiz. Why is December 11 months away?
