Carrie Underwood put her superstar vocal cords and acting skills to the test when she performed in NBC’s "Sound of Music Live!" which caught the attention of 22 million viewers watching her step into the role made famous by Julie Andrews. Yahoo reported on Jan. 19, 2014 that NBC will be bringing another live musical event to your TV screen.
NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt let everyone in on the big news saying “We’re very pleased to be underway on ‘Peter Pan’ as our next live holiday musical for the whole family.”
Greenblatt added “We were all delighted to see how ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ struck such a chord in December and brought nearly 19 million people to the live telecast plus another several million viewers over the weekend.”
Neil Meron and Craig Zadan will be taking the same role as they did with “The Sound of Music Live!” by once again being named as Executive Producers. "Peter Pan Live!" is set to premiere on Dec. 4, 2014 on NBC.
Greenblatt continued by saying “In the hopes that lightning strikes twice, we think we’ve landed on another great Broadway musical — which ironically also starred Mary Martin — that is a timeless classic for all audiences, young and old, who just never want to grow up.”
