'The Wiz Live'

Earlier this year, NBC announced it will continue its live musical specials with a December production of The Wiz.

Especially exciting is the fact that they have cast a newcomer in the role of Dorothy, Shanice Williams.

Williams is joined by quite the roster of talent including Queen Latifah, Amber Riley, David Alan Greir, Elijah Kelly, Mary J. Blige, Uzo Aduba, and Stephanie Mills, who originated the role of Dorothy on Broadway in this production.

The special will air on NBC December 3.
