NBC has announced that the next live musical to be broadcast on the network will be "Peter Pan" in December.
The live television event will be produced by the same team behind "The Sound of Music," which received mixed but mostly positive reviews in December.
The musical, featuring Carrie Underwood, had 19 million viewers which surprised the peacock network and immediately led to ideas for another live musical event.
The cast of "Peter Pan" has not been announced. "I have some dream choices, but I don't want to talk about it before approaching them," NBC entertainment president Robert Greenblatt said.
