Smash producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who are also producing the 85th Annual Academy Awards, will helm the telecast, which will be based on the original Broadway musical. A premiere date has not been announced, but it will air sometime during the 2013 holidays.
"We're thrilled to be presenting the Broadway version of The Sound of Music live and having Carrie Underwood as the star brings it to a new generation who will fall in love with it for the first time as many millions of people already have," NBC said in a statement.
