If you aren’t familiar, The Wiz was a 1978 remake of The Wizard of Oz with an African American Cast, the film was produced as a collaboration between Motown Productions and Universal Pictures.
Here is information about THE WIZ LIVE from NBC!
NBC embarks on its latest musical holiday tradition with a live television production of the groundbreaking Broadway show that brought the vivid world of Oz to life in a fresh, funky sing-along journey down the yellow brick road.
Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the original show was a massive hit on Broadway and even spawned a feature film starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Now, a Tony-winning creative team, the hugely imaginative Cirque du Soleil Theatrical, and a diverse cast of showstopping performers will come together to create an eye-popping new take unlike anything seen before.
