For those of you who loved Carrie Underwood in NBC’s live broadcast of “The Sound of Music,” or Allison Williams in “Peter Pan,” or who just loved to watch Twitter as they were airing, big news: NBC announced today its next spectacular will be … drumroll please … “The Wiz.”

The show is expected to air in December. 

Cirque du Soleil will help produce, but no cast announcements have been made yet.
