The news was announced at the Television Critics Association Press Tour July 31 in Los Angeles, where Groff also performed a mashup of Beyoncé songs and tunes from Hamilton.
The program will be part of a new series celebrating leading voices of musical theatre. Additional artists to be part of future hour-long specials include Hamilton Tony winner Leslie Odom Jr. and Falsettos Tony nominees Stephanie J. Block and Andrew Rannells.
Performances will be filmed at Jazz at Lincoln Center in December 2017 and air on PBS in 2018.
