In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, NBC;s entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said that the network has narrowed down the choice of its next live musical presentation to three titles and that Carrie could possibly be the star in it again!
"We've narrowed it down to about three titles, " the exec shared in the interview.
"They all have complicated rights issues and I don't know if we're going to be able to get them..."In the next couple of weeks -- we want to do this quickly -- we'll zero in on something because we have to produce it. We now have less than a year. When we did Sound of Music, we literally spent 18 months on it and had a lot to learn. We also learned a lot and I think we don't have as big of a learning curve for next time."
NBC announced that they would create another live musical presentation following the recent broadcast of The Sound of Music starring Carrie even though the show received mixed reviews. While many were on the fence about Carrie's performance, the show had tons of viewers though! The show reportedly dominated the night with NBC's best Thursday average, excluding sports, since the night of the "ER" finale. In total viewers, it proved to be NBC's best Thursday average excluding sports since May 13, 2004. Whoa!
When asked if Carrie may once again be featured in the upcoming musical adaptation, Bob replied, "Maybe, [though] I think it will be a whole different thing."
Hmm, sounds like he's a bit unsure about having her on board again, right? Maybe it's just us, though! Do you think Carrie should be in NBC's next TV musical?
