Glee creator Ryan Murphy is developing a spinoff series starring Lea Michele,
RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
“This will be announced soon,” an insider close to the situation revealed.
“They’re making the deals now and it also presents a viable exit plan for the
main Glee series itself — in that some of its core cast would also migrate to
the Lea Michele project as Glee is showing signs of aging.”
The hit FOX show already lost one of its main cast members earlier this year
when Cory Monteith passed away in a Vancouver hotel room after overdosing on
heroin and alcohol.
In the four months since Michele lost her boyfriend, she recently revealed that
it was actress Kate Hudson who was her pillar of strength during the
heartbreaking days immediately following Monteith’s death — and even invited her
to stay in her home.
“I called her and said, I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is
swarmed [with reporters],” 27-year-old Michele told Elle magazine. “She was
like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing.
“She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the
refrigerator were my favorite juices. I’ll never really be able to thank her,
truly, for what she did for me.”
A spinoff show be the fresh start Michele needs to move on from the tragic death
“This is definitely happening,” the insider said.
