Ryan Murphy & Gwyneth Paltrow Are Prepping A New Musical Dramedy Show — That's Basically The Adult Version Of Glee!
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!
