Fox Announces 'Rent' as Next Live Musical Production!

The beloved musical Rent is headed to Fox as a new live production!

Award-winning producer Marc Platt, who produced Grease: Live for the network, is bringing the show to life with Fox.

“We are so honored to partner with the estate of the brilliant Jonathan Larson and producer Marc Platt on one of the great musicals of our time,” said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs, Fox Television Group. “The title is so iconic, the music is so beloved, and the themes are as meaningful today as they were when the show first premiered on Broadway. With Marc overseeing this project, we are sure it will have a profound impact on the legions of fans who know and love this musical.”

Rent tells the unforgettable story of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams during a time of great social and political turmoil. Composer Jonathan Larson died the day of the musical’s first performance when it was off-Broadway in 1996 and he went on to posthumously win the Pulitzer Prize and several Tony Awards.

    The casting of this will make or break it. Rent is way too iconic for them to cast popular people with lackluster vocals just for ratings.
