The CW Developing a Musical Series


The CW Developing a Musical Series


Called 'Acting Out', the new show is looking at darker tone compared to 'Glee' for it has the influence of Billy Bob Thornton's 'Bad Santa'.

The CW is probably inspired by the success of FOX's "Glee" that it has ordered for a development of a musical TV series. The network's target market is clear, teenagers who would enjoy some singing and dancing.

Assigned to be the writers are "Bandslam" writer slash director Todd Graff and the film's producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas. The former is not only in charge of writing but also executive producing and possibly directing. The project is being developed under the title "Acting Out" and it is described by Deadline as a mix of "Glee" and "Bad Santa".

Generally, it would explore the relationships of counselors and staff of a "down-on-its-luck summer camp whose new owner is a young curmudgeon in the vein of Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa." Greff is familiar with the situation for he once directed a 2003 film titled "Camp" which is about a burnt-out Broadway songwriter who goes to work at a musical camp for young performers.

No release date and other details have been shared.
