Fantastic news, Glee fans!
Glee co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan will no longer be writing Glee scripts themselves. Yes, seems hard to believe, but the producers wrote 44 scripts over 2 seasons by themselves. And frankly it showed. Although season 2 certainly had it’s fine moments, bad character development, story lines that went nowhere and/or strained credibility and sloppy story telling were problems throughout the season.
Murphy has hired new staff writers/producers with STELLAR credentials.
Joining Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan in the writers room will be Allison Adler (Chuck, No Ordinary Family) as co-executive producer. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who did the rewrite of the Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark musical, was recently tapped as co-producer, with Buffy and Angel veteran Marti Noxon and frequent Christopher Guest collaborator Michael Hitchcock, who guest starred on the first season of Glee, serving as consulting producers. Rounding out the group are staff writers Matt Hodgson and Ross Maxwell.
Murphy meant to have a staff in place by the middle of Season 2, but he got so busy with the show and other projects and it never happened. Marti Noxon? From Buffy. I was a big Buffy fan back in the day, and I am REAL happy about that news..
So, how about you peeps? Are you looking forward to Season 3? I think Glee might be making a “Comeback”. Yes!
