Marking the first time a Broadway production has been broadcast on TV in its entirety while still walking the planks, MTV has inked a deal with the producers of
Legally Blonde to air the musical uncut, with a "premiere" set for Sept. 29 at 1 pm/ET.
MTV - which hopes to glom some of that Disney-friendly High School Musical audience with the move - has the rights to go Blonde at least three and up to six times in six weeks.
The best part about this Blonde on MTV? Laura Bell Bundy actually knows her dance steps.
