Quick update to say that we'll broadcast the Glee pilot on E4 on Tuesday, 15th December at 9pm!
From the press release:
"Glee follows an optimistic secondary school teacher as he attempts to inspire an oddball group of students to realise their star potential and restore the school's show choir - the glee club - to its former glory.
In this advance preview of the pilot episode, teacher Will Schuester - or Mr Schu - begs the headteacher - Principal Figgins - to let him take on the Herculean task of transforming this group of underdogs into a world-class vocal ensemble. The pupils who join the club are; Mercedes, who apes Aretha Franklin; Kurt, the fashion-conscious falsetto; Tina, a punk-rock; Artie who plays guitar and is bullied for being geeky; and the diva-in-the-making Rachel.
Glee Club rehearsals get off to a rocky start; Rachel feels that without a formidable male lead to match her talent, they will never be taken seriously. Principal Figgins then threatens to cancel the club in favour of renting the auditorium out. He and Schu strike a bargain: if the club earns a spot in regionals, the club can stay. And then Schu comes across Finn, the school's popular quarterback with a Motown voice. The series begins in January 2010 on E4."
