Fox’s live production of the Tony-winning musical “Rent” will air on Sunday, January 27, 2019, the network announced Monday.
“Rent” is a three-hour production and does not currently have a director or cast attached. Fox announced in May that “Rent” was on the way, but there was not yet a planned premiere date at that time.
The project is executive produced by Marc Platt (“Grease: Live,” “La La Land”), Adam Siegel, Julie Larson, Al Larson. Revolution Studios’ Vince Totino, Scott Hemming and Marla Levine are also executive producing.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical from the late writer/composer Jonathan Larson celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
Last month, Fox Television Group CEO and co-chairman Dana Walden told reporters that the company was still “genuinely excited” about its version of “Rent” despite the delays.
“Rent” airs at 7:00 p.m. ET live/PT tape-delayed on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019, on Fox.
