Attention Glee fans — Ryan Murphy is heading back to the world of TV musical dramedies!
The Scream Queens creator is teaming up with Gwyneth Paltrow to pitch the show One Hit Wonders to cable networks later this year!
Gwyneth will serve double duty as executive producer and star of the project that was originally set up as a feature length film with Sony back in 2012!
But Murphy insists that the story will make a "much better" TV show than movie, and already has themes for the first four seasons mapped out!

Paltrow will be playing a 40-year-old woman who recorded a hit song 15 years ago, and is now broke and miserable. But everything changes once the Mortdecai star gets a call from a record label looking to form a supergroup with her and two other singers who each had a hit song in the ‘90s!
While the label has a hidden agenda, the group ends up catapulting into stardom and becomes an inspiration to women everywhere!
Murphy said the series will feature original music and center on female empowerment, and — like most of his recent work — is expected to be an anthology series!
OMG, we're in LOVE with this premise — we're sure networks will enter a bidding war over One Hit Wonders, and we can't wait to find out more!
