Ryan Murphy on 'The Glee Project'

”Glee” co-creator gives the hard sell on why you should be watching Oxygen’s reality series

Posted on

It’s must-see TV for Gleeks
”People who love Glee will love this show. By the time this person comes on the air this fall, people will really know them and root for them. The person that we found is so perfect. I think the winner is going to be a huge star in the tradition of Lea Michele, Darren Criss, and Chris Colfer.”

Tears! Drama! Heartbreak!
”I love the show, too, because it’s so raw and so real. It’s really intense — I’ve never seen so much sobbing, ever. Every week, I felt like Jennifer Lopez. Like, this is so damn hard. I thought I was going to be more Simon Cowell and I ended up being Jennifer Lopez, so go figure.”

The winner will face off with Jane Lynch
”We have a great story line planned for Sue that will involve the Glee Project winner, who will become the person Sue has hated the most in the entire history of her life. She’s done destroying the glee club and she just wants to destroy the Glee Project winner!”
