While that wish list hasn't been made public, NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt has tapped producers Meron and Zadan to return with another musical title next year. The Sound of Music Live! was viewed by 18.6 million viewers last week. Read about it here.
Greenblatt said that several rights holders have contacted NBC and are eager for NBC to adapt one of their titles for live television. Greenblatt, Zadan and Meron are eyeing several potential musical candidates, all of which are classic, family-friendly musicals with familiar scores.
With a broad selection of classic musicals to chose from, Greenblatt suggested that a live musical telecast on NBC will likely be an annual holiday event for the next several years.
