… to talk about THIS.
“GLEE,” according to press notes, is an “inspiring one-hour musical comedy that follows an optimistic high school teacher as he tries to transform the school’s Glee Club and inspire a group of ragtag performers to make it to the biggest competition of them all: Nationals.”
I really have no idea how I’ve missed any of the buzz about this show, which is being created by Ryan Murphy, who created Nip/Tuck and (more awesomely, in my opinion) Popular.
The premise is enough to get me interested– a television musicomedy? I’m so there– now word comes via Ausiello that Kristin Chenoweth and Victor Garber– aka two of my favorite people ever– are going to have recurring roles.
Garber is just freaking amazing in everything he does, although I have my fondest memories of him kicking ass and taking names in Alias. And I am so glad Cheno found some place– besides her David E. Kelley vehicle, “Legally Mad,” about which I’m feeling sort of dubious– to show off her comedic skills, and her fantastic voice.
This all comes on the heals of the slightly less exciting news that High School Musical will return for a fourth (original cast-less) outing. Don’t get me wrong, I love Kenny Ortega, and the awesome so-bad-its-good-ness that is the HSM franchise but will
he strike gold again and find someone who is willing to do THIS?
