NBC — you’ve started a trend.

Fox is delving into the live musical game with a three-hour production of “Grease” next year, following closely in NBC’s footsteps after the rival network garnered 18.5 million viewers with its live production of “The Sound of Music” last year.

Dubbed “Grease Live,” the production will run for three hours (longer than the typical weekly primetime span of two hours) on a TBA date in 2015.
