FOX Unwraps First Official Teaser for “A Christmas Story Live” Television Event

FOX on Tuesday has released the first official teaser for the season’s biggest television event, A Christmas Story Live!, which you can check out below!

FOX and Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television partnered with acclaimed film, television and theater producer Marc Platt (“Grease: Live,” “La La Land,” “Wicked”) on the LIVE musical event A CHRISTMAS STORY LIVE!, inspired by the holiday classic feature “A Christmas Story” and the Tony Award-nominated Broadway production “A Christmas Story: The Musical.”

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, recent Tony Award winners 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 composed several new songs for the three-hour LIVE television production, with Jonathan Tolins and Robert Cary (“Grease: Live”) adapting the book. Emmy Award nominee Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live,” “Bridesmaids”) stars as the mother of nine-year old “Ralphie Parker,” and two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick stars as the “Narrator.”

“‘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 Company. “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 Live will air Sunday, December 17 at 7pm on FOX.
