“The Sound of Music” Live Event with Carrie Underwood Coming in December

The hills are alive with the sound of Carrie Underwood, apparently, seeing as the Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1959 musical classic is getting a new interpretation coming in December to NBC.

Underwood will star as Maria Von Trapp alongside True Blood’s Stephen Moyer and Tony winners like Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti and Christian Borle.

Earlier in the month, Underwood told the Associated Press that the live television show will be a new experience for her and her cast members “None of us have [ever done this before]. This is a live show on TV. So this is definitely a challenge for all of us.”  She also said the experience will be like “going to a Broadway show, but you’re in your living room.”

The commercial (above) for the upcoming live event is complete with saccharine smiles, blue skies, and glittery font choices.
