"Scrubs" to Go Musical

The NBC sitcom "Scrubs" will air a musical episode next year, according to Playbill.com. The Tony Award-winning composers of "Avenue Q" will write the songs.

Debra Fordham, a supervising producer for "Scrubs" told Playbill, "The general plot is that a woman comes into Sacred Heart, our hospital, complaining that she constantly hears music, yet all her tests come back normal. Is she just crazy? Or is something else going on?"

"Avenue Q" won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2004.

Fordham went on to say that Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx will write "the big opening number, the act break and the finale. The fourth one is a song about a stool sample!"

The episode will shoot later this year and air some time in 2007.
