Remember when Ryan Murphy wasn’t going to be involved in Oxygen’s Glee spinoff, The Glee Project? Yeah, about that.
“You’ll never see the name Glee and not know that Ryan Murphy is involved,” producer Dante Di Loreto told reporters at the winter 2011 Television Critics Association press tour. “Everything creatively about the show is always driven by Ryan.” As such, say hello to The Glee Project's new executive producer: Ryan Murphy!
The 10-episode Glee Project premieres in June, and Dante is gunning for more than just one season. “Hopefully this is successful and we get to do it again,” said Di Loreto. “Our show has been able to grow talent and hopefully that can continue on [The Glee Project].”
