ABC is considering developing a live Disney musical!
Live TV musicals have become very popular lately, with the success of Fox’s Grease Live, and NBC’s The Wiz. Now, ABC is developing a potential live Disney musical as well, which was revealed by ABC’s network chief, Channing Dungley, before ABC’s upfront presentation.
“We’ve definitely been in those conversations and we have some things we’re currently in development on. This is a space that’s already become very crowded. When we make our play in that space, we really want to make sure it’s the right project for us to be doing and one that really speaks to the heart of who we are at ABC and as a part of the Disney family.”
The possibilities are endless for potential musicals, with access to all of Disney. Like a live TV broadcast adaptation of Frozen, or maybe a rendition of one of Disney’s Broadway successes, such as The Little Mermaid or Newsies.
As both a musical and Disney fan, I am very excited at the prospect of a Disney musical I can watch on my TV. Disney stories are always memorable, and adding song and dance to the mix can only make it better. What story do you think ABC will bring to TV? Let us know in the comments!
