Get Psyched: ‘Grease’ is Coming to TV
Following the success of NBC’s “Sound of Music Live!” last year, FOX is the latest network to order a live special of a major motion picture. The network is set to air a three-hour broadcast of “Grease” in 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Looks like musicals are officially back, and we couldn’t be more psyched.

“From Broadway to film, and across generations,Grease is one of the most beloved musical stories ever told — and we can’t wait to bring it to our air in a spectacular live event. Its iconic characters and addictive songs make it the perfect fit for Fox, and we’re going to give it the kind of star power and production quality to make every Sandy, Danny, Rizzo and Kenickie out there want to get up and sing along,” FOX said in a statement.
The network’s decision to stage a live musical should come as no surprise following the smash success of NBC’sCarrie Underwood-helmed “The Sound of Music” last December and the announcement that the network is working on a live production of “Peter Pan.”
No word yet on who will play Sandy or Danny, but we do know the network is looking to put together a buzzy young ensemble of singers and dancers to bring in strong ratings and a youthful audience.
