Mel Brooks’ classic comedy-turned-Broadway show Young Frankenstein is about to become a live television musical, ABC announced Wednesday.
Casting and an air date will be announced later this year with a premiere in the fall. Young Frankenstein is ABC’s second live musical, following 2019’s The Little Mermaid.
Young Frankenstein Live will likely be based on the Broadway adaptation of the 1974 spoof.
The Broadway musical, which was nominated for three Tony Awards during its 13-month run was slightly altered for a revival staged on London’s West End in 2017.
