We’re just two months away from NBC’s star-studded production of The Wiz Live and now we have our first glimpse of the show.

After waves of cast announcements, NBC is giving fans a taste of what they can expect this December when Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin-Man, and the Scarecrow ease on down the road to Oz.

Many were suspicious when NBC first announced it was remaking the classic musical, but when it was announced that Queen Latifah, David Allen Grier, Ne-Yo, Mary J. Blige, Amber Riley, Uzo Aduba, Shanice Williams, and Wiz original Stephanie Mills was on board, folks started to relax.

And now that People got exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the show, fans are even more excited.

The Wiz Live hits airwaves December 3. Will you be watching?

    YEEEESSSSS!!! About a couple of weeks ago I introduced “The Whiz” to my niece and now this! I can’t wait.

  • I’m so excited to see this and I’m ECSTATIC for this generation of children to see this because it breaks my heart (I’m a music teacher in inner city schools) that young kids of color KNOW what The Wizard of Oz is but don’t know what The Wiz is!!!
