The specials will air a week apart
NBC has cast Grammy Awards winners Kelly Clarkson and Michael Buble to star in a pair of upcoming hour long holiday specials.
The Kelly Clarkson special will be based loosely on Charles Dickens’ classic novel “A Christmas Carol.” During the course of the yet untitled special, Clarkson’s character will learn about the true meaning of Christmas. Her special will air Wednesday, December 11th at 10 pm ET/PT.
For his annual holiday special, Buble will deliver some of his most popular songs in an intimate setting and invite some of his favorite guest performers as well. The special will air Wednesday, December 18th at 10 pm ET/PT.
“These two immensely talented Grammy Award-winning artists will be the perfect addition to the holiday season,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We are looking forward to bringing their signature sounds into America’s homes.”
The Clarkson special, to be filmed in Las Vegas, will be produced by Done and Dusted Productions with Ian Stewart serving as executive producer.
Brad Lachman will produce the Buble special.
