Bye Bye Birdie Live!


During a Paley Center event for Hairspray Live! it was revealed that the next Musical NBC will bring to the small screen will be Bye Bye Birdie. The Musical was adapted twice before, once in 1963 for the big screen and once in 1995 as a TV Movie.

The Musical centers on Rock Star Conrad Birdie set to join the army in the 1950's and before he goes he sets up a contest to give a fan a kiss before he ships out.

It was also revealed that Jennifer Lopez will both star and serve as exec-produce along with her partners Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina who will team with Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Lopez will play the role of Rosie, Bridie's secretary/girlfriend, a role that earned Chita Rivera a Tony Nomination.

Harvey Fierstein will write the Teleplay adaptation.

Looks like fans of the musical will have to wait a little longer, due to Lopez's hectic schedule, NBC renewed her series Shades of Blue for a third season, she will be judging NBC's dance show World of Dance, she also has her All I Have Las Vegas residency, and she's working on a Spanish-language album, the musical has been pushed to 2018. This will mark the first time since 2012 that NBC will not air a new musical, though 2018 now has 2 musicals on the schedule.
