Another day, another fountain of news spurting out of TCA. Yesterday, Glee creator Ryan Murphy announced to journalists that he was developing a half-hour musical comedy series for his dear friend Kristin Chenoweth. Though the Emmy-winning actress did guest on Glee, the new show would not be a spin-off, but rather a brand new series that would showcase Chenoweth’s unique talent. “I’ve always wanted to do something for Kristin,” Murphy was quoted as saying. “Kristin is a good, close friend of mine obviously, so I’m writing a half-hour musical comedy specifically for Kristin because if you can sing like that, I want her to be the star of her own show where she sings. I can’t say too much about it yet. Kristin is so funny. I want it to be adult.” The project is in its nascent stages, but EW can confirm that Chenoweth is indeed in negotiations to star.
What do you think of this idea, PopWatchers? Are you game for a Murphy-Chenoweth collaboration? Since details are scant, let’s make up our own premise. Chenoweth as a singing sleuth? Chenoweth as a singing dressmaker? Chenoweth as a singing phlebotomist? Should there be pies? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
