Fox Gets Gleeful

by Mindy Monez July 24, 2008 2:42 pm
Nip/Tuck and Popular creator Ryan Murphy has had enough of this bleak world and would like to spruce it up with a little glee. His new project is an hour-long Fox comedy called, well, Glee, which centers around a soccer coach who is talked into instructing one of the world's worst high school glee clubs. As we all know, Murphy always does things a little differently, so the cast will be a mix of ethnically diverse and straight and gay characters singing about four songs per episode. And don't worry, he promises he's not going to try to write music -- these will be popular songs you already know and love (or hate). "No original music is being written. People like to see people singing songs they know." So long story short, think Dangerous Minds meets American Idol meets Queer as Folk. Meets... my dreams come true.

An hour of high school choir capers from the man who gave me Christian Troy and Christian Troy's hairdo?! My fag hag heart just skipped a beat! This is going to be great. Take it from me, there is nothing funnier than high school choir. In the eleventh grade I witnessed two baritones come to blows over pitch problems in a Bach run. It took me hours to stop laughing, and this kind of thing happened all the time. The series will likely be paired with American Idol when it returns next march, so luckily you've got a little time to work on your pitch.
