NBC scored a surprise hit last December with The Sound of Music Live!, which starred Carrie Underwood in a live presentation of the classic musical. The Sound of Music has been popular for decades, but in the social media age, it was irresistible to viewers who wanted to tweet along with the program. The network will try to repeat that success when they air Peter Pan Live! this December. They’ve also landed a big hook for Hook: Christopher Walken. The program will reunite the actor with executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who worked with Walken on Hairspray. The rest of the special has yet to be cast, but Walken alone might be more than enough to get viewers in front of their TV sets with the Twitter app at the ready.
Hit the jump for the press release. Peter Pan Live! will air December 3rd.
