As one live-action fairy tale after another winds its way to the big screen, NBC is doing one better with an actual live production. Following the smash success (well, ratings-wise) of last winter’s The Sound of Music Live! the network is putting on Peter Pan Live! this winter.
Today NBC unveiled the poster for the upcoming “Peter Pan Live!” telecast.
The artwork features Christopher Walken in full Captain Hook garb with Allison Williams as the titular hero, ready to take flight and combat the villain.
Aside from Williams and Walken, much of the cast consists of theater vets. Christian Borle (who played Max in Sound of Music Live!) is Mr. Darling and Smee, Kelli O’Hara is Mrs. Darling, Taylor Louderman is Wendy, and Alanna Saunders is Tiger Lily.
“Peter Pan Live!” will air Dec. 4 on NBC. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will exec produce the special with Rob Ashford (“The Sound of Music Live!) directing.
