Wait. A Sound of Music remake? And it’s live? This is one of those classic movie remakes that I’m really on the fence about. I’m definitely nervous  to see my favorite musically gifted German fam updated and recast, but I’m excited to see Carrie Underwood play the leading role. Plus live TV is so   exciting. Something tells me Julie Andrews would approve.

Although Carrie’s not the first Idol alum to try their hand at acting, I have no idea if Carrie can actually pull this off. Apparently she’s appeared on “How I Met Your Mother,” but so did Britney Spears.

The NBC musical will be playing on a television near you during the 2013 holiday season.
