The next NBC Live Music Event could be The Wiz
This could be good or a hot ass mess.
NBC’s entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt has optioned the rights for Music Man and The Wiz, but let's focus on The Wiz. The network could score huge ratings with The Wiz, if done right. I could see this working out if the cast is tight and the set is very creative.
Hopefully, they will choose The Wiz. It would check off the diversity box and NBC needs the diverse viewership. So, they should go with The Wiz.
