Set Visit to Glee

Live (or Almost Live) From the Set of Glee!

If I was excited for Glee after just a few clips and the first episode, I'd say that excitement has now reached DEFCON 1 after visiting the set. I traveled to LA on Wednesday to hang out with the cast of this upcoming Fox comedy from Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy — and lucky for me it was a performance day.

All the actors playing glee club members were on hand to perform their routine to a Queen song (over and over again — oh, the life of an actor). The performance, as you might expect, included a lot of choreographed dance movies, and let me tell you: it is heaven. You'd think that after watching the same routine performed at least eight times, I would be a little jaded, but I'm not. I'm just even more excited for you all to see this show, and I can't believe nobody thought of this idea before.

A few other tidbits from my set visit:

  • The actors don't perform the songs live, which means they're not only learning their lines and up to three dance routines an episode, but they're also booking studio time to record their songs. It's a lot of work, but they all seem to be loving it.
  • I asked anyone who would listen if a soundtrack was on the way, and most responded it was definitely something they're thinking about. I'm really going to want these arrangements after they air.
  • The super-cool Jane Lynch invited a group of us into her trailer. She's the tallest woman I've ever met. She also gets to wear many colorful track suits when in character as the surly cheerleading coach, which is hilarious.

I have so much more to share with you, so check back over the coming weeks for my interviews with the stars of Glee!

I'm pretty sure Party Down is done filming the first season. Since Glee is filming now, maybe it'll be wrapped for the year by the time PD comes back (if it does, fingers crossed!)
