[ # ] NBC might Ease on Down the Road with The Wiz live!
January 16th, 2015 under NBC, Nick Cannon


For the last two Decembers, NBC has done live productions of Broadway musicals. In 2013, the hills came alive with The Sound of Music and last year they decided they didn’t want to grow up with Peter Pan.
Today NBC’s Chairman of Entertainment, Robert Greenblatt, announced at the NBC TCA Winter Press Day that they have two options for their December live performance and they are The Music Man and The Wiz.
In the past, they announced The Music Man was going to be the one that would air, but they recently optioned the rights to Urban version of The Wizard of Oz.
Even though they are still 11 months away from the special, Greenblatt said, “we are actually looking very seriously at some casting options (for The Music Man.)” Then he added that the network just acquired the rights to The Wiz, and they might ease on down that road.
I am hoping they go with The Wiz because it is more modern. Well that and I like it more. I can already see Nick Cannon, Nicki Minaj, Lenny Kravitz and Taye Diggs as the leads.
Which musical would you prefer and who would you cast?
