Fox Is Also Doing A Live Rent Musical

Fox has found its follow-up to Grease Live.

Following prolonged negotiations, Jonathan Larson’s Tony-winning HIV/AIDS-themed musical Rent is set as the network’s next live musical, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Larson’s estate is on board to exec produce alongside Marc Platt (La La Land, Wicked). Rent marks Platt’s latest live project for following NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar and Fox’s newly announced A Christmas Story and last year’s Grease. Additional auspices, as well as a premiere date and casting, will be announced later.
