After the network announced Friday morning that they'll be turning the classic A Christmas Story into a live musical event, Fox announced that it also has a live production of the smash hit Rent in the works as well. Dear Evan Hansen's Tony-nominated music duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (who received 2013 Tony noms for A Christmas Story's score) will write several new songs for the broadcast. They will compose new songs for the television version.

Based on the short stories of Midwestern humorist Jean Shepherd, the story is set in the 1940s, when all nine-year-old Ralphie wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder BB gun. It has since become a holiday classic.

"A Christmas Story: The Musical" ran on Broadway from November 19 to December 30, 2012 and played at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden during the following holiday season.
