Fox will air another one of its live musical productions! Fox’s A Christmas Story Live! will air Sunday and Bebe will be opening the show by performing a new holiday song called “Count on Christmas.” It was written specifically for the special by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who also composed the show’s other songs, as well as the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and the Oscar-winning La La Land song “City of Stars.”
The rest of the cast includes Maya Rudolph, Matthew Broderick, Jane Krakowski, Ana Gasteyer, David Allen Grier and Ken Jeong, as well as boy band PRETTYMUCH, who’ll appear as the Hohman, Indiana, carolers.
