The televised staging of the 1971 rock opera will be executive produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice, Marc Platt, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

The show about the final week of Jesus' life features music by Webber and lyrics by Rice.

"As we continue to expand the profile of our live musicals, we are thrilled to be partnering with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to bring a new live staging of the iconic Jesus Christ Superstar to NBC," Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement Wednesday.

"Casting has just begun, but we want to fill out this classic show with as many recording artists as possible to give proper voice to what is the original rock opera score."
