no title

Forget Broadway! The best live theatre can be found on TV!

On Wednesday, NBC announced it will produce a live version of Aaron Sorkin's critically acclaimed play A Few Good Men! This is the network's first live drama.

The West Wing creator will collaborate with Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who produced The Sound of Music Live, Peter Pan Live, and The Wiz Live.

According to NBC Chairmen Robert Greenblatt:

"I am thrilled that Aaron Sorkin is coming back to NBC to adapt and produce a live broadcast of his electrifying play 'A Few Good Men,' which seems as timely as ever today… Aaron is one of the most acclaimed theater, television and film authors of our time, and I am pleased that the live event business that we pioneered with musicals is now expanding into other genres and attracting artists of his caliber. I look forward to his collaboration with our 'A-team' producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, to bring another exciting piece of live drama to a broad audience."

Set in 1986, the play centers on military lawyer Lt. Daniel Kaffee who must defend three Marines on trial for murder.

You can watch this masterpiece in early 2017.
