*Stevie Wonder is on board for an upcoming NBC miniseries set against the Underground Railroad.
The project will focus on three couples based on real slaves who fought their way to freedom.
Wonder, who will serve as executive producer for the project, may also be involved in a musical adaptation of the miniseries that NBC hopes to adapt for Broadway, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said Friday.
“The hope is that Stevie will write the score” for the musical, which would be staged after the miniseries airs, Greenblatt said.
An airdate has yet to be announced.
