'Glee' Creator Confirms New Musical Series with Kristin Chenoweth

Kristin Chenoweth'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy confirmed at the TCA panel for his hit series that he's working on a new musical series for Emmy-winner Kristin Chenoweth.

Put away those outraged faces, 'Glee' is not getting a spin-off -- yet. According to Zap2It, the new TV project will be separate from the Fox series and more adult, Murphy said.

"I've always wanted to do something for Kristin, and 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," Murphy told TV critics. "I can't say too much about it yet. Kristin is so funny. I want it to be adult."

Murphy said he is looking forward to doing something along the lines of 'Nip/Tuck,' something "dark and procedural."

Chenoweth became a household name after starring in Broadway's 'Wicked' alongside another 'Glee' guest star, Idina Menzel. In 2009 she won an Emmy for her work on the cult-favorite 'Pushing Daisies.' The actress received another Emmy nomination for her work as April Rhodes on 'Glee.' Audiences can currently see her back on Broadway starring opposite Sean Hayes in 'Promises, Promises.'

Murphy could be biting off more than he can chew by planning another musical series, albeit one with a more dark and adult vibe.

I loved her as Frasier's agent . . . and I will love her in her upcoming series. She is very talented.

I'm not a fan of Kristin Chenoweth (either of her acting/singing abilities or of the characters she plays), but if this means less of her guesting on Glee, I'm all for it!

I know, I'm mean.

Well I love Kristin, but this is asking for trouble. Glee struck gold. I don't think any of us really understand how that happened. Trying again so soon would be tempting fate. I don't want poor Kristin to be on a great but canceled show again.
