In anticipation of the premiere of Glee, FOX has arranged for a special screening of its pilot in Los Angeles. The first episode was screened at Santa Monica High School and many of the musical series’ stars came up in support.
A bunch of the main cast such as Jessalyn Gilsig, Jayma Mays, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley and Kevin McHale were all present and some of them posed for the photographers with the “Loser” sign on their head.
Glee follows an optimistic high school teacher Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) who strives to revive McKinley High School’s Glee Club to once its glorious state. The club used to be on top of the choir world but due to some scandals over the years, it became the spot of misfits and social outcast.
In the pilot episode that airs May 19, Will is challenging the group of outcasts to realize their star potential. Going up against McKinley’s cruel high school caste system and facing harsh criticism from everyone around him, Will is determined to prove them all wrong.
It looks hilarious, heartwarming and heartbreaking all at once. I can’t wait for this show.
