Live Broadway shows are the next big thing on TV!

Following in the overwhelming success of The Sound of Music Live! on NBC last week, the network has committed to producing another live staging of a Broadway musical in 2014, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt, who also moonlights as a Broadway producer (9 to 5, The Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), told the news outlet they were "circling a couple of titles," adding that they were only looking for mainstream musical theater classics that contain familiar songs.

Headlined by country music star Carrie Underwood and also starring Stephen Moyer, Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti and Christian Borle, The Sound of Music Live! was watched by a whopping 18.6 million TV viewers during its December 5 airing. An encore broadcast will be announced during the holiday season and a DVD/Blu-Ray release is set for December 17.
