DESCRIPTION:
(from FOX's press release, May 2017) Fox Broadcasting Company and Warner Horizon Unscripted Television have partnered with award-winning film, television and theater producer Marc Platt (GREASE: LIVE, "La La Land") on the LIVE musical event A CHRISTMAS STORY, inspired by the holiday classic feature "A Christmas Story" and the Tony Award-nominated Broadway production "A Christmas Story: The Musical." The three-hour live television production of A CHRISTMAS STORY will air this December on FOX. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, recent Tony Award nominees for the musical "Dear Evan Hansen," and lyricists of "La La Land's" Academy Award-winning song, "City of Stars," also scored "A Christmas Story: The Musical," and will compose several new songs for the LIVE television event, with Jonathan Tolins and Robert Cary (GREASE: LIVE) adapting the book. "'A Christmas Story' is one of the most beloved holiday films of all time - audiences have made a yearly ritual of re-watching it - and we are so thrilled to have Marc leading the charge in bringing the musical version of that film to television," said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. "The extraordinarily gifted Pasek and Paul were instrumental in transposing the movie to the stage, and we believe the transition to LIVE television event will be just as entertaining for viewers."
