Not much trumps Rudolph's take on Melania

Maya Rudolph will star as Ralphie’s mother in Fox’s newest live musical event, A Christmas Story.

A Christmas Story is inspired by the film A Christmas Story and the Tony-nominated Broadway production A Christmas Story: The Musical. The Fox production will feature new songs from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land), who scored the Broadway show.

The three-hour production airs on Sunday, December 17 at 7/6c. (There will be a tape-delay for the west coast.)
