FOX gave “Glee” the coveted post-Super Bowl time slot and the show is planning to take advantage of every moment in front of what is sure to be their biggest audience ever.
Ryan Murphy, the show’s co-creator, said that the show is considering a post-Super Bowl episode along the lines of the Madonna or Lady Gaga episodes from last year. Only this time the featured artist will be a guy, which might be a good move, considering they will likely also have their largest male audience ever.
“We don’t want to do very many [theme episodes],” Murphy says. “… But for after the Super Bowl, we’re doing a big artist who we’re in negotiations with.”
Murphy also says that while “Glee” is working on a Britney Spears-themed episode, which won’t be done “as you’d think” it would.
The show’s creators are also excited about the upcoming talent search contest that will air on Oxygen and pick a new cast member for Season 3. Thousands have already sent in audition tapes. “It’s just crazy, wonderful and great,” co-creator Ian Brennan says. The amount of time people put in … it’s really cool. I thought [the submissions] would be more rough around the edges. It’s really impressive.”
“Glee” begins its second season on Sept. 21.
