NBC's Next Live Musical: 'Hairspray'

NBC has announced its next live musical. 

The network is planning to bring "Hairspray" into homes this December. 

NBC Chairman of Entertainment, Bob Greenblatt, revealed the news on Wednesday at the Peacock's portion of the Television Critics Association Winter Tour. He did note, however, that the deals were still being finalized.

"Deals [are] still to be closed, but hopefully all that will happen in the next few days and we're bringing you 'Hairspray' next December," he told reporters. 

NBC brought "The Wiz Live!" to audiences in December 2015. "Peter Pan Live!" came to the small screen in 2014 and "The Sound of Music Live!" the year before.
