The Sound Of Music, Peter Pan, The Wiz, and now… Hairspray!

Fresh off of Mary J. Blige & Co.'s production of The Wiz LIVE! back in December, it's now confirmed that NBC's live stage show for 2016 will be Hairspray!

Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return as executive producers having worked on the previous three live events, and we're hoping they just continue to improve.

NBC head Robert Greenblatt announced the decision ahead of the TCA Press Tour on Wednesday, saying:

"I'm happy to say that we are hopefully going to be produce a live new movie of Hairspray next December."

Hairspray marks the first modern musical selected by the Peacock Network, so it should be interesting to see if this will attract a younger audience while retaining the impressive ratings.

We wonder if it'll be better than the rival productions of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Dirty Dancing??

Hopefully they cast Amanda Bynes!
