FOX announced on Friday that there will be a three-hour live television musical for the holiday classic, A Christmas Story, scheduled for December.

The musical is based on the 1983 film about about a boy whose wish is to get a BB gun for Christmas. Marc Platt, who previously collaborated with FOX on Grease: Live, will be an executive producer alongside Adam Siegel.

La La Land‘s songwriting duo, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, are composers of the musical.

Live musicals have been a HUGE hit over the past few years, so we hope this won’t be any different.

Mike Darnell, the President of Unscripted and Alternative Television at Warner Bros., expresses how lucky he is to have Platt producing: “Marc is the defining voice in this genre and it’s amazing to have this caliber of talent leading what is sure to be a new standard in live musical events.”
