Luis-Dreyfus Turns Blue

In what will be her first TV gig since the finale of “Seinfeld” a year ago, Julia Louis-Dreyfus will join Drew Carey in the musical “Geppetto.” The live-action retelling of the Pinocchio story (told from the vantage point of his puppeteer father) will air on ABC’s “The Wonderful World of Disney” during May sweeps next year. Shooting begins June 7. Louis-Dreyfus will play the Blue Fairy. “I did this because of the singing and dancing, which isn’t like anything I’ve done before,” she told Variety. “The music (by Stephen Schwartz) is a hoot.”
