The First Promo for Glee

at . Comments

A one-hour musical comedy about a high school glee club?!?

Yes, that's the concept behind Glee. But we hope viewers give this unique show a chance.

Its series premiere airs immediately following the eighth season finale of American Idol. After that, fans will need to wait until the fall to see it on Fox's regular schedule.

From the mind of Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy, Glee follows an optimistic high school teacher, as he attempts to transform his school’s singing club. His goal? To help members make it all the way to the national competition.

The series' great cast includes:

  • Jane Lynch (Best in Show)
  • Jayma Mays (Heroes)
  • Jessalyn Gilsig (Nip/Tuck, Friday Night Lights)
  • Matthew Morrison (Hairspray on Broadway)

Glee Quotes

Rachel: I'm just scared. I haven't been this scared in my whole life. You know, when I was in high school and I had all these big Broadway dreams, I just got used to everyone laughing at me and I figured one day I would make it and I would show them that I'm not a joke anymore. And then I did and it all fell apart and I realized that there is a whole different kind of lauging that is way worse. So...I can't. I can't fail again.
Mercedes: Rachel, we're all going to fail again and again...the hardest part is just getting up, shaking it off, and getting on with it. Let me tell you this, when you sing? Nobody's laughing.

God as my witness, I will break her down.
