Fox.com & Playbill.com have reveled Glee's premiere date!
Glee, the new FOX musical TV series about a high school glee club, starring Matthew Morrison as an eager teacher has landed a prime showcase spot after the May 19 episode of American Idol. The new series from Ryan Murphy, creator of Nip/Tuck, will get one sneak preview episode 9 PM May 19, prior to beginning its regular 13-episode run in the fall.
"An ambitious and unique show such as Glee deserves an ambitious and unique kickoff," stated Fox chairman Peter Liguori. "We also wanted to take advantage of the huge American Idol promotional platform to launch the marketing campaign in May."
Hopefully this Idol bump will help out. While I never was a show choir-er, I do want Glee to succeed. Matt Morrison, Lea Michele, inside gay jokes, & choreographed dance? What's not to love?
