21st Century Fox Television chairman and CEO Gary Newman revealed the plans for the stage musical at the company's Investor Day last week.

"We launched a live stage business with a sold-out arena concert tour in 2011, and now a live stage musical is in the works," Newman said during a presentation with fellow 21st Century Fox Television chairman and CEO Dana Walden. "And we have two more seasons of the show ordered by Fox."
