Super exciting news for all you Chris Colfer fans out there! (Oh wait! That would be me!) The actor, who plays Kurt on Glee, will be penning an episode for the series, set to air later this season, according to TV Line!
According to sources, the show’s producers (including series co-creator Ryan Murphy) presented Colfer with the opportunity to craft his very own hour of Glee, and the burgeoning auteur jumped at it.
Details on the content of the episode are TBD, but I hear Colfer has already met with the show’s writing staff to hash out some ideas.
Chris already has a literary resume that includes penning the 2013 indie film, Struck By Lightning, which he also produced and starred in. He’s also got three novels under his belt. Two children’s books, part of his New York Times best-selling, Land of Stories series (a third coming this summer) and a companion novel to Struck.
Chris has been asked if he’d ever consider writing a Glee script, and he said only if he could write a one-off episode that’s not part of the ongoing storyline, as he felt most comfortable creating his own worlds.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to a Glee episode written by Chris Colfer?
