Singer Carrie Underwood will play Maria Von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour TV take on “Sound of Music”, says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Speaking for everyone at NBC, we couldn’t be happier to have the gifted Carrie Underwood take up the mantle of the great Maria von Trapp,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt. “She was an iconic woman who will now be played by an iconic artist.”

Movie-musical vets Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will produce the film, set to air on the telly early next year.
