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!

This Early Footage Of Chris Farley Voicing Shrek From 1997 Will Make You Question Everything! Watch Here!

no title

Chris Farley's last official movie credit is 1998's Western comedy Almost Heroes with Matthew Perry. But the late comedy legend was working on another role at the time of his death, which would be one of the most recognizable animated characters of all time.

The Saturday Night Live alum was originally cast as everyone's favorite green ogre in the 2001 animated film Shrek before he died of a drug overdose in 1997.

But the funny man's version of the titular character would have been very different than the one we're familiar with! Kevin Farley, who is executive producer of the new documentary I am Chris Farley, said:

"Originally the Shrek character was a little bit more like Chris, like a humble, bumbling innocent guy."

The lead role of the DreamWorks fairytale comedy ultimately went to Farley's SNL co-star Mike Myers, who gave the ogre a Scottish accent and a bigger attitude. But the Farley family isn't bitter that the studio recast the role. Kevin explains:

"I understand why [they replaced him]. The studio needed to do what they needed to do. It was a bad time, bad timing… a tragedy. Mike did a great job with Shrek. He knocked it out of the park."

Want to listen to the late comedian's version of Shrek? Check out the early storyboard footage featuring Farley's dialogue from 1997:
