Mel Brooks And ABC Teaming Up To Bring ‘Young Frankenstein’ To The Network As A Live TV Event

These live TV events have become quite the thing. Over the last few years we’ve been treated to live TV versions of Grease, All In The Family, and a whole crap load that I can’t remember as I’m sitting here typing this.

The whole point of this though is to let you know that this next time around we will all be treated to a true horror classic – Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein.

The 1974 film is a comedy classic – this live event will be based on the stage play, which I have never seen but – if Mel Brooks is involved – I’m in.

ABC will air this special live event sometime this fall – given the subject matter I’m going to go out on a limb and guess it will be sometime around Halloween time.

No casting or any other pertinent information is available at this time – but as the production ramps up, that info shall come.

You all in for a Young Frankenstein Live production? I know I sure the hell am.
