The trailer is alive!

Here’s your first look at NBC’s upcoming live performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical The Sound of Music, starring Carrie Underwood as Maria and Stephen Moyer as Capt. Georg Von Trapp. Sure you’re skeptical. We’re skeptical. Pretty much everybody everywhere is at least a little bit skeptical! But you just know this is going to be a telecast to talk about.

Below is the trailer. Since the program is going to be live, obviously there’s no footage from the final product, but there are some glimpses of apparent rehearsal footage. The Sound of Music Live airs on NBC on Thursday, Dec. 5.
