"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy is reportedly creating a spin-off of the show, in which Lea Michele will star since the entire show will be centered on her "Glee" character Rachel Berry.
It seems like everyone is doing their best to help Lea Michele deal with the death of her reel and real life boyfriend Cory Monteith. In a recent report, Radar Online confirmed that the "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has decided to create a spinoff of the teen musical comedy-drama series that will center on Michele's character of Rachel Berry.
"This will be announced soon," an insider close to the situation revealed to the tabloid. "They're making the deals now and it also presents a viable exit plan for the main Glee series itself - in that some of its core cast would also migrate to the Lea Michele project as Glee is showing signs of aging."
According to reports "Glee" has already started losing its viewership in large numbers after the death of "Finn" - one of the main characters of the show. The actor was found dead in a Vancouver hotel due to overdose of drugs and alcohol.
The creators of the show were planning for a spin off way back in 2011 featuring Michele, Monteith and co-star Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel, but the idea was soon dropped.
''We were actively talking to actors, we were actively writing, we were actively getting ready to pitch. OK, here's the three actors, and they want to do it, so here's the story for them. Now that that has collapsed," Murphy said at that time.
Ever since Monteith's death, Michele has been trying to put on a brave face. The actress recently revealed to ELLE magazine that Kate Hudson has been her pillar of strength since his passing.
"I called [Kate Hudson] and said, 'I don't know where I'm going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters],'" Michele told Elle. "She was like, 'Oh, you're going to stay at my house.' Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there. I'll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me."
