Although FOX’s musical drama Glee is no longer on the air, its cast and some of the actual drama behind the scenes have been the subject of media attention for years. From the tragic deaths of Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera to Mark Salling’s pedophilia scandal and even the recent rumors that Lea Michele can’t read, it seems as if there has been a dark shadow looming over the show and its stars.
But for the first time ever a new documentary is daring to go back and time and uncover all the drama behind the scenes. According to Deadline, Discovery+ and ID are developing a three-part docuseries that aims to “lift the curtain” and explore the highs and lows of the series and its production community. Ample Entertainment will produce.
The series will feature anecdotes and testimonials from numerous cast and crew members who worked on the show during its six-year run, as well as family members and friends who also got to witness what went on behind the scenes.
It’s unclear if the show will try and discuss what happened to some of the cast members since the show ended, but realistically it’s impossible not to pay homage to the likes of Monteith or Rivera in some way for their groundbreaking roles.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Glee revolved around the misfits who participated in an after-school Glee Club at the fictional William McKinley High School in Ohio. What originally starts out as a hobby winds up become a life-changing support group for the students as they navigate issues such as bullying, depression, and their budding sexualities.
In addition to Monteith, Michele, and Rivera, the show also starred Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Heather Morris, Darren Criss and Melissa Benoist.
Currently all episodes of Glee are available to watch on Disney+.
