A new “Glee”? Well, it’s NBC so will have to fight the network blanding effect but from the few fast-paced clips I’ve seen, it looks like a lot of fun. The premise involves Zoey, played by Jane Levy (whom I loved in “Surburgatory”) suddenly hearing the thoughts in the form of song of everyone around her. Not only is she worried she’s gone insane, but she’s now privy to other peoples’ private thoughts including her best friend Skylar Astin whom she finds out is in love with her.
The cast they’ve assembled looks great, with Lauren Graham being my fave of course, along with Peter Gallagher, Alex Newell (a “Glee” alumni), and Mary Steenburgen.
Strangely, they’re airing the pilot tonight (January 7th) on NBC and waiting until February 6th to air the second, continuing from there. Not sure how that’ll build an audience, but that’s network TV for you. If this were on a streaming channel, it would have a much better chance of surviving. We’ll see.
