Transcript of glee

glee was written back in 2005 based on Ian Brennan's personal experience. originally glee was suppose to be a film rather than a t.v series, at first no one really took interest in the idea, but Mike Novick, t.v producer and friend of Ian's, went to the same gym as Ryan Murphy, he gave Ryan the script. Ryan and his colleague Brad Falchuck took interest, and suggested it be a t.v series, they rewrote the script, and fox picked it up within 15 hours it was received. Ryan and Brad became the shows executive producers, Ian became a co- executive producer and nick the producer. Glee is set at McKinley high school, Lima, Ohio, and is filmed at the paramount studio and the Helen Bernstein high school.
