NBC Sets 'The Music Man' Live Production for 2015!

NBC is adding yet another musical to its live event slate – The Music Man will be coming to your television screen next year!

While no timetable is set for the production yet, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt announced during the network’s upfront presentation that he has closed a deal to air a live version of the musical in 2015, according to THR.

The Music Man “centers on a con man, who poses as a boys’ band organizer and leader and sells band instruments and uniforms to the naive Iowa townsfolk, promising to train the members of the new band.”

The critically acclaimed 1962 film adaptation of the musical starred Robert Preston and Shirley Jones while a 2003 television movie featured Matthew Broderick and Kristin Chenoweth.
