Network television will soon be live with the sound of music.
NBC announced Friday that it will partner with "Smash" producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron for a live TV broadcast of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's "The Sound of Music."
"There used to be a tradition of broadcasting musicals live back in the 1950s, and we're thrilled to do it once again," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a release.
Producers said they have no plans to remake the 1965 Oscar-winning film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. "That would be artistic blasphemy," Zadan said.
