NBC To Fly With ‘Peter Pan’ As Turnaround Takes Root

19 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt came to the Television Critics Assn. session on Saturday with a slew of programming announcements, none more anticipated than the decision to make “Peter Pan” its next live musical production.

“Peter Pan” will air Dec. 4, with “Sound of Music Live” exec producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron back at the helm.

“Get ready for flying children and state-of-the-art effects,” Greenblatt told the scribes during his exec Q&A in Pasadena. And he hinted that they are already closing in on a male actor to play the title role. He noted that the role in the musical version has often been played by a woman — but not always (“Hint, hint,” he told reporters.)

The interest among journos in the live musical announcement was indicative of the importance of the runaway success of the Dec. 5 “Sound of Music Live” telecast to the network.
