The CW Invests In Glee Rip Off!

| Filed under: TV NewsGlee

cw plans musical dramady like glee

Sources have confirmed that the CW network, known for its devotion to teen dramadies, is looking to develop it's own musical hour- long show. They've enlisted the help of the crew behind the flick Bandslam and Camp to get the ball rolling and are describing the project, titled Acting Out, as "Glee meets Bad Santa."

All we got out of that sentence was bad!

The show reportedly revolves around the "relationships of counselors and staff of a down-on-its-luck summer camp whose new owner is a young curmudgeon in the vein of Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa."

In all honesty, people are going to see this show for what it is at first sight- a ripoff of Ryan Murphy's sing-a-long brain child. What he's done, you can't replicate, Plus, its so clearly obvious that people are only interested in the idea because of the dollar $ign$!

Perhaps think about refocusing your energies elsewhere. Maybe One Tree Hill could use a boost in its 38th season!

    Everything on television is a rip off of another show. Nothing is original any more. Pretty much every reality show has stolen largely from another. I'm not saying that it's right but it seem to be the norm.

    Glee has been super lame so far this season. The story line is well there is none. The acting is getting pretty bad and all the guest spots is starting to get pathetic. So a new show about singing kids wont be so bad. And it sounds like it may be real funny. I would totally give it a chance. It cant be much worse that Glee is now.

    I think it's a great ideal. A modern version of Glee where the cast deosn't sing songs older than they are!!!!!!! GLEE SUCKS NOW!!!it's made for old people.

    Re: Spanishphly – what is wrong with singing the classics? I don't consider myself old and I enjoy them singing songs by the beatles or queen because it's still good music. And it's not true anyway, they've been doing plenty of modern songs. Or do you want some justin bieber and miley cyrus? maybe YOU are to young for glee
