Is There A ‘Scrubs’ Musical in the Works, For Real?

Scrubs Musical Broadway
NBC

Through all its seven season on NBC and one (technically two, if you’re feeling masochistic) on ABC, medical comedy ‘Scrubs’ was a truly unique series that deftly switched between drama and comedy.  But with any good single camera comedy with one foot out of reality, a love of musical theatre was bursting out the seams in more episodes than the show’s designated musical episode.  But now that ‘Scrubs’ has long fallen by the wayside, might the next stop for Bill Lawrence‘s Sacred Heart crew be Broadway?

Fans of ‘Scrubs’ know that the beloved NBC series rarely shied away from the opportunity to bust a move, placing a number of musical stylings, performances and Broadway numbers in its nine-year run, but might it all have been leading to something bigger?  According to series creator Bill Lawrence, J.D. had best get his jazz hands ready.  The current ‘Cougartown’ executive producer recently tweeted that a ‘Scrubs’ musical was in the works, a sentiment followed by the clarification that he’s “not kidding.”

The series would lend itself naturally to a musical, having already itself delivered full musical episode “My Musical,” as well as a number of daydreamed performances over the course of the series. How a musical would capture J.D. (Zach Braff)’s daydreams remains to be seen, but you can bet we’d buy a ticket!

What say you?  Could a ‘Scrubs’ musical really happen, presumably with an all-new cast?  Would you want any of the past songs to make it in?  Give us your thoughts in the comments below!
