Oklahoma! Looking To Become a TV Series

Oklahoma! Looking To Become a TV Series

Skydance Television has partnered with the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization and Concord to develop an original television series inspired by the new revival of the Broadway musical Oklahoma!

Oklahoma! was the first musical written by the Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. The original Broadway production opened in 1943, and was adapted into an Academy Award-winning 1955 film.

“Oklahoma!’s artistically revolutionary position in American culture has both kept it at the forefront of theatrical performances and allowed for various new innovations. This first-time ever television series will expand on the life of this remarkably resilient show,” said Ted Chapin, the chief creative officer of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, which was acquired by Concord in 2017.

The present-day series will be set in America’s heartland and include music by the legendary duo Rodgers & Hammerstein, reimagined for a modern audience, as well as new music to support the story. The show is written by John Lee Hancock (“The Blind Side”) and Bekah Brunstetter (“This is Us,” “American Gods”).
