Fox To Air Live Musical ‘A Christmas Story’

Producer Marc Platt will executive-produce the holiday event for this December, inspired by the feature film A Christmas Story and the Tony Award-Nominated A Christmas Story: The Musical.

Fox Broadcasting and Warner Horizon Unscripted Television have partnered with film, television and theater producer Marc Platt (Grease: Live, La La Land) on the live musical A Christmas Story, inspired by the holiday classic feature film and the Tony Award-nominated Broadway production A Christmas Story: The Musical. The three-hour live television production of A Christmas Story will air this December on Fox.

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, recent Tony Award nominees for the musical Dear Evan Hansen, and lyricists of La La Land’s Academy Award-winning song, City of Stars, also scored A Christmas Story: The Musical, and will compose several new songs for the LIVE television event, with Jonathan Tolins and Robert Cary (Grease: Live) adapting the book.

 “A Christmas Story is one of the most beloved holiday films of all time —audiences have made a yearly ritual of re-watching it — and we are so thrilled to have Marc leading the charge in bringing the musical version of that film to television,” said David Madden, president, entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Co. “The extraordinarily gifted Pasek and Paul were instrumental in transposing the movie to the stage, and we believe the transition to live television event will be just as entertaining for viewers.”

A Christmas Story: The Musical was nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score (Pasek and Paul) and Best Book of a Musical. The original Broadway production opened Nov. 19, 2012. Based on the writings of Jean Shepherd, the book was written by Joseph Robinette, with music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

The musical was based on the motion picture A Christmas Story, written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and the novel In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd. 

A Christmas Story will be produced by Warner Horizon Unscripted Television. Marc Platt and Adam Siegel will executive-produce, with Jonathan Tolins and Robert Cary serving as co-executive producers and writers. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul will compose music and lyrics for the event.
