Variety reports that “Will and Grace” will kick off the final season with an episode broadcast live — with two performances, one for the east and one for the west.
News of the live seg comes just days after “Will & Grace” snagged a series-best 15 noms. Series co-creator Max Mutchnick said the live element will allow the show’s scribes to make changes right up until air time.
“We’re going to have some very topical material,” he said.
Mutchnick, who created and exec produces the show with David Kohan, also said there will be “a surprise element within the live telecast,” but he declined to say what that may be.
